about

Combining his trademark brand of Fourth World fusion with new
influences from the emerging hip-hop scene, this 1990 album is a
landmark release in Jon Hassell's career to date. Futuristic sci-fi funk
with a completely melted production aesthetic – instruments and
samples blur into one another in the manner of the best dub records.

Presented here in a deluxe triple disc edition alongside a 1989 concert performance of the City group, mixed live by Brian Eno, and a carefully edited sequence of alternate takes, demos and re-interpretations by current electronic producers that presents a parallel dimension version of the original release.
