Title - 'Into Bass and Time'
Artist - Ancient Astronauts

This is, admittedly, a little hard to wrap one's head around, given that it blends the spoken word with bass beats, downtempo grooves, hard hip-hop, dubs, and scratching - and yet, it works quite well. Kicking off with the primarily spoken 'Bass And Time,' we flow beautifully into the drum-dominant 'Still A Soldier,' before the rap'd over 'The Shining' (feat. Azeem).

The instrumentals of both 'Impossible' and 'Anti Pop Song' blend into one another, before the rap'd 'Don't Stop' (feat. both Rooham and Anmad) comes bouncing along; just in the nick of time. The catchy 'Worldwide' is next, before the orchestral-intro'd 'Eternal Searching' (feat. W. Ellington Felton) rolls out.

'Peace In The East' (feat. Entropk) is a flavorful work of instrumental art, before my personal favorite track, the instrumentally-funky 'Odvert Street Rock' comes to the fore. What a wonderful, truly fresh sounding work of musical art that song is. A tough act to follow, we next get the rap'd 'Give It To You' (feat. Monsoon), who intro's the song as something that you've never heard before.

'Rocket Sokanoa' is one long-ass track that, I'm sad to say, goes nowhere fast, but we get back on track with 'Last Night' (feat. Ama Nau); a spoken-word blend of beats that tells a lovely story. The track 'Better Hypnotto' (feat. Phat Old Mama) is smooth, unaffecting for the most part, but the final track, the instrumental 'Nocturna' is simply wonderful, ultra soothing in tone - and a great way to bring this interesting CD to a close.
