iTunes Editors’ Notes

D.C.’s Thunderball are known for mixing up genres like electro-soul, dub, lounge, and funk, churning out tunes that fit somewhere between soundtrack and dancefloor music. On Cinescope the trio adds in a more organic component, resulting in a sound veering away from the sophisticated cool of Ambassadors of Style in favor of the warmer Tropicalia and Afro-beat influences of Scorpio Rising. Consequently, the collection is a bit of a globetrotter and genre-shifter. If your dancing shoes are in need of a workout, let Cinescope rip: you can warm up with the slinky, East Asian-funk of “The Road to Benares” or the mid-temp groove of “Electric Shaka,” and work up a sweat with the soulful “Return of the Panther” or the hard funk of “Thunder In the Jungle.” Of course, you may prefer to samba to “Chicachiquita,” or get slinky with “Lost Vagueness.” There are plenty of flavors on Cinescope, and when it’s time to slow the tempo, you’ll find the downbeat jazz of “Elevated States” and the cool swirl of “To Sir With Dub” to be perfect, soothing soundscapes.

Customer Reviews

Lounge Retro and Soundtracky, all in one!

This was my first exposure to Thunderball's music. If you have an interest in Retro Ultra Lounge and/or Soundtrack type music, this is a must. If you're familiar with Shawn Lee's soundtrack oriented music, this is familiar ground. Where Shawn Lee's stuff is more orchestral and "old action movie" specific, this has a funk quality that is enhanced by cool vocals and horn arrangements occasionally. Plenty of good electric sitar action. Although the genre is listed as "Electronic" , this is a bit more organic and funky.... highly recommended!


If you love the previous you will love Cinescope. Excellent grip mixes by Mustafa, Afrika Bambaataa and Miss Johnna M. Fans will not be disappointed!

Drift Draft

Bada-Bing Such a beautiful album I have never seen before... Probably not the best for those new to the ESL Scene (in that case, check out Thunderball's Scorpio Rising), but for those who've been around... This is it. This is the album, in my opinion, which puts Thunderball at the Forefront for ESL, marking them as just not one of the posse, but setting the duo as one of the true contenders.
