Top Class Album

While I presumed that this album might be full of good music, I expected the majority to be overly safe, not ground-breaking or refreshing. Pleasingly, I am wrong, there are some truly challenging re-workings of Dego and Marc's work.
The version of 'Universal Love' by Sonar Kollektiv might seems a little overly sweet for the first few listens, but it soon worms it's way in and it's not long before one draws comparisons with Rotary Connection. Nu Tropic's re-work of 'Why don't you talk' is also pleasing, and manages to sound modern and retro at the same time.
'Conceptions' is a little stale, but still knods along nicely to it's own beat, sounds best late at night.
'Planetaria' combines the "huge-ness" of the original with the light heartedness of a latin ditty and works well.

The reworking of "Third Stream" is probably one of the most challenging here, purely for its jazz timing, but it excels at luring you in to its spell and is another highlight on the album.
'Give In' has been given a light and sombre ballad remake which hits the intended mark and completely changes the feel of the song.
'Blank Cells' gives Luke Parkhouse the perfect opportunity to show off his percussive skills, but it does sound little too Mission Impossible toward the end for my ears.
The version of 'Sophia' here is taking a while to sit well with me, it's a little too 80's, sounding like it should belong on an episode of Columbo or similar. It's not all bad, but it will take some time to become one that gets listened to all the way through - and its different which is what it's all about!
'Cosmic Tree' has a new feel to it, much more jaunty and upbeat, the female vocals working well with the light piano jazz.
'People always criticise us' is probably the most unrecognisable rework, a simple Rufus sample in the original is replaced by a deep, live jazz version with very nice keys and brass. Lush.
The rework of 'Humans' is a little tenuous but is a lovely Jazz track.

The album closes with "Star Chasers", a version by re:jazz, and like thier other work it does not disappoint, it's light, warm and silky - very nice indeed, the Sax in particular is delicious.... though nothing will ever match the Masters at Work version for me personally.

Overall this album is a rich, varied long player, make some room in your day or dark winters evening for it and you will not be disappointed. It goes without saying that if you are a 4 Hero fan you will be very happy. It should also serve as an album of discovery to untrained ears.

Biography

Formed: 1989 in Dollis Hill, London, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Consistently on the front lines of the drum'n'bass battleground, the duo of Dego (McFarlane) and Marc Mac (Mark Clair) nevertheless failed to receive the exposure of luminaries like Goldie and Roni Size, mostly because they didn't release much 4hero material during jungle's crucial crossover years, from 1994 through 1997. Despite beginnings in London's hip-hop underground during the mid-'80s, the duo moved into the hardcore/rave scene later in the decade and recorded classics like "Mr. Kirk's Nightmare"...
