A single artist tribute to Mr. Rupert Parkes, a.k.a. Photek ( my number one drum-&-bass man ). Hadn't heard ay'thin' from him in over 3 (read: long wait) years and was trippin' over the Web when I saw that he had released an album in Sept. '00 on the Astralwerks label. So I "ran" to "Coconuts" and grabbed a copy. It's nice; not strictly d-&-b as he changes the pace with some tracks that lean towards a House-ier sound (though the Vocal tracks are NOT represented herein-just instrumental pieces). Also included cuts off 'Form + Function, some d-&-b mp3s an' a little bit o' noize. It was also the perfect excuse to get Robert Fripp's 'Exposure' and Bowie's 'Joe the Lion' on tape again [love those screams]. This one'll put 'yer car speakers to work, man ! A 'Tip-o-the-Hat' to: Jere Chandler: he created the g.a.b. handwriting font used on the j-card, and to Candra; 'cause I 'lifted' the Sneaker Pimps tune off her CD: "My Moment in the Sun' A regular AotM "Team" effort. ~:-p

You know I want a copy. What do you want in return?

neat. worth it for the cover alone! where'd the Linux penquin get his drumsticks? You twisted my arm: please send me this + Silence for my birthday...thanks.

Excellent survey of Mr. Parkes' career. More of the jazzy stuff than the tek-step stuff (I may do a tek step mix to go along with this) and without the new house stuff. Highly recommended.

wow. it's been some time since you annoyed us all with "exposure" played over and over and over until we all screamed to "stop". only now I can appreciate it. awesome mix, big bro'! did you send copies to Cathy & Bill as well? I for 1 am grateful for your pioneering. I might have ended up a 'Village People idiot' had it not been for your fixation on left-of-center music in your youth! : )
