Release info: Our particular favorite track on this LP is On The Double but Time & Space is also a very nice deep intelligent track, where as Rivers Of Congo with it’s sharp bongo percussion are one of Groove’s best tracks ever. The magnum opus of Grooverider and a giddy high point for Drum & Bass music showcasing the Seventies Afrofunk sound that Grooverider was so heavily influenced by. As the title suggests, a live double bass is plucked throughout in perfect percussive harmony with the warm muted drums, unhurried in tempo and providing a perfect lazy bed for the subdued brass and wind instruments interspersing throughout. The midway cadence, laced with subtle drum rolls, is deftly superseded by a new permutation of the double bass rhythm which rolls all the way to the end.

Co-Produced by Optical who seems to have really picked up on Grooverider’s vibe. Using his expertise in such masterful compression of the drums, the listener, on a good system, could almost be in the same room as the drummer and double bass player.
