    Meet the future music, same as the past music. That's no criticism -- this is all great stuff. It's just that if the album title leads you to expect something really new and forward-looking, you'll probably be disappointed. If, on the other hand, all you were looking for were world-class club/dance grooves, in styles ranging from deep house to breakbeat to neo-soul to hip-hop, by such esteemed artists as J Boogie, Afro-Mystik, and Rithma, then you've definitely come to the right place and you will not go home disappointed. Dance music doesn't have to be groundbreaking; it only has to be useful, and there's lots of very effective dance music here: check out Rithma's alternately funky, housey and jazzy "Love + Music," for example, or the old-school hip-hop flavor of People Under the Stairs' "Hang Loose." King Kooba brings in the zen with a slowly developing piece of intermittently Latin house music called "Last One Out," and Afro-Mystik combines a stuttering broken beat rhythm with soulful vocals and understated keyboard on the fascinating and jittery "Natural." The prediction here seems to be that the future of music is cool, funky, and effortlessly danceable. Sounds like a pretty good future. ~ Rick Anderson
