Album Review

A vast improvement over their 1991 debut, Parallel Universe was the album that showed what jungle was capable of in the full-length medium. While the U.K. charts were caught up in ragga jungle mania, Dego and Mark Mac wedded their unsurpassed, futuristic breakbeats-immaculate (check "No Imitation" for proof) with inspiration including keyboard stringwork from Chicago house, a few sci-fi themes from the Detroit auteurs, and the glossy experimentalism of early-'70s jazz fusion. Along with LTJ Bukem's Good Looking crew, 4 Hero and the sound of Parallel Universe pre-figured electronica's obsession with "intelligent" jungle during 1995-1996. The duo dip into R&B/house territory with a few diva vocals, which somewhat subverts the innovative feel of a drum'n'bass classic.

Customer Reviews

Great work!!!!

4hero were truely ahead of their time with this album. They have yet to release anything that was a flop. Great work!!!!!


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"...
