Originally released in 1998, the debut album from Manchester DJ/remix duo Mark Rae and Steve Christian was something of an anachronism?too late to ride the last wave of trip hop but unconnected to the current drum’n’bass scene. For that reason, it sounded both vitally fresh and timelessly classic, and its setting of sample-based, lushly brooding atmospherics against tough, hip hop beats endures still.

Now remastered and featuring three new tracks?of which the sweetly urgent “Premonition” is the standout?the album reveals itself as deserving a place alongside Massive Attack’s Blue Lines for all fans of flawless British nu-soul and effortlessly funky beats.
