Customer Review

on 1 April 2003
I really enjoyed listening to this CD. It is definitely in the genre of cilled out music, but there is also a lot of variation, and between tracks as well as the CDs themselves. Already having been a fan of Richard Kruder (and an owner of The K&D Sessions and their DJ Kicks release) I was expecting a lot from this mix, but was not disappointed. It includes some great, slow base beats, coupled with jazzy snare and great vocals. Slower than the likes of Funki Porcini, and less eclectic than NOW but worth a listen nonetheless.
The first CD could be a soundtrack to a day viewed in slow motion, but is really evening music. Refreshingly, it is not the sort one would expect to hear in the background of a trendy bar - it is more interesting to listen to than that. The mixing of sample beats and vocals works throughout the CD, and neither overrides the other. The music never really changes pace, which makes it very easy to listen to when working or reading, yet it will never go completely unnoticed. All in all I would thoroughly recommend a listen if you have an opportunity.
CD 2 does not have the slow base of the first, and in this respect is not unlike Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells, though slower and less of a mish-mash of different instruments and striking chords. It would be great listening to when drinking coffee and reading the papers in the morning, or working, but is certainly not party music. I think the best word to describe these tracks is beautiful, as this is what they are to listen to and contemplate.
