Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

From the Six Degrees roster and beyond, music mixed and remixed (including a Thievery Corporation remix of Baaba Maal that also crops up on the Phat Global #1 compilation!). It's all wonderful stuff, from a fabulous RSL track featuring Ladysmith Black Mambazo that shows the future of South African music to the shimmering subtleties of Bebel Gilberto and the eco-friendly spirituality of Banco de Gaia. And it all flows well together--the test of any good compilation--emphasizing the forward look of Six Degrees with nods to both the dance floor and the chill-out room while never losing sight of the countries of origin. Especially good is Bob Holroyd's "African Drug" and Renson's "Darkshine," two rare tracks, while Euphoria delve into American gospel for "Lost on a River." A journey around the globe and home in time for tea--what more can you ask? --Chris Nickson

3.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop Ambient Denizen August 9, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This album attempts to bring together music from diverse parts of the planet and make it all(or most of it) sound like hip hop. There are some good moments when the American music influence doesn't overshadow what's there in its musical essence waiting to be heard. Subo's remix is great, especially the Brasilian percussion. Thievery Corp's take on B. Maal is also trippy and well done. But for the most part, I would rather hear and dance to the real deal. It seems that people think that to get listeners to listen to and buy African, Brasilian music one must put it in a hip-hop-ambient envelope for them to digest it. Not for me and many other dedicated dj's and dancers. If I want to hear African music, I'll take Paulo Flores from Angola any day of the week. If I want to hear Brasilian music, give me Olodum or Ara Ketu. The source is always richer than the subsequent rendtions. Remix at the source.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get Your Fresh Diversity Right Here July 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Real World should stand up and take notice...but looking at the early promo's for WOMAD USA, they already have. "Traveler '00" isn't just a collection of world-influenced grooves, but equal parts 'world music' sampler and beat-infused collection of tracks. Better in some ways than the previous "Traveler" sampler, this disc is diverse in every way--sources, styles, and tempos. With big 'world-music' names like Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Baaba Maal now contributing, plus their own parcel of artists such as the now well-known Cheb i Sabbah and rising fusionists Ekova, Six Degrees is now entering the big time for both the ethno-techno crowd and the long-standing 'world' audience. Pay attention!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes, Diversity is a BAD thing October 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I first attained this CD compilation, I quickly put it on for the reason that it is a product from the Six Degrees label.  How disappointed was I after the first listen?  Not as disappointed as I was after repeated listens.
This CD has 12 tracks of global music with an electronic feel that give world music a baaaaaaaad name.  Tracks that should be relevant to the music we listen to, and in some bland way, I guess they are.
Unfortunately, this CD compilation comes off like a stale version of Transmissions From Planet Dog.  The music sounds at times like trance circa 92, but not the good trance from that period. For example, check out track 3, the Thievery Corporation remix of Baaba Maal. Or if you're in the mood for some hideous torture, check out the Uman track or the Dj Cheb / Sabbah track.  Sometimes the music resembles dry trip hop or mundane acid jazz tracks that add nothing to the any genre.
Here's a wacky idea!  How about Ladysmith Black Mambazo doing a track over some tired drum n bass track??!  The kids will love it, eh?  Okay, just stop it people.  Stop with the lame gimmicks and get back to good music.  Imagine if you were a photojournalist and each track on this compilation is some war zone, some trouble spot in the World.  Each track brings out this horrible drone that muddles its way into boredom.
Even the Banco De Gaia track serves to solidify the negativity of this listening experience.  If you want Banco De Gaia, get the Maya album.  Now I have this compilation, which is only good for torturing people and small animals.  No tracks on here should get any play by any DJ of any substance.  This is a world tour that you should demand your money back. 
The only track on there that would be worth listening to is the Bob Holroyd track "African Drug" remixed by Coldcut.  Except for the fact that I heard this track years ago and it's not exactly a classic remix by Coldcut.
The maniacal monotony of mundaneness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip worth taking June 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I just happened to find this cd the other day, and must say it REALLY impressed me. I've got other stuff from the 6 Degrees label (like DJ Cheb I Sabbah), and this really gives you a chance to hear some of the most lively, interesting and eclectic music being made today.
A great sonic adventure. If you like Banco de Gaia, this has got a preview of his upcoming album on it. The whole album takes the ethno-ambient elements of Banco de Gaia and explores them to their fullest. Open your ears to this one!
