    First 10,000 CDs in limited edition packaging.
    Coldcut: Matt Black, Jonathan Moore.
    Additional personnel: Annette Peacock, Roots Manuva, Saul Williams, Robert Owens.
    DJs Matt Black and Jonathan More have garnered as much acclaim for their production and remix work under the name Coldcut as they have for the albums they've released on their groundbreaking Ninja Tune label. Such a resume makes Coldcut one of the prime movers in electronica, and 2006's varied, absorbing SOUND MIRRORS indicates nothing less.
    As per usual, Black and More lay down ambient textures, shuffling breakbeats, and elements that pull from dub, acid house, hip-hop, and everything in between. But what distinguishes SOUND MIRRORS from most electronica outings is the appearance of vocalists on nearly every track. The guests include John Matthias, Roots Manuva, Jon Spencer, and Amiri Baraka, among others, giving the effort an accessible, song-oriented pop edge that balances out its heady electronic pedigree.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (p.65) - "Eclectic concoctions of dub, house and ambient grooves..." -- Grade: B-
    Uncut (p.70) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he wheezing dubtronic lament 'Whistle And A Prayer', featuring Andrew 'Fog' Broder, may just be their coolest cut yet."
    Magnet (p.93) - "More and Black are still at the forefront of the cut-up dance scene they birthed."
