Editorial Reviews

Eventually this pulsating compilation of electronica videos will qualify as a raver's relic, but time will never erode the driving drum and bass grooves that comprise this 16-track survey of club hits. This isn't merely music to listen to, and these aren't videos you'll watch repeatedly with rapt attention. No, you'll want to absorb this DVD into your bloodstream until it catapults you into an altered state of consciousness, whether or not you've added any artificial inducements to get there. Besides, you won't need an alternative fuel source to accelerate with this one-stop party favor. Get yourself a big screen, a great Dolby 5.1 system, and crank this puppy to "11," 'cause Sound & Motion, Vol. 01 ain't for wussies.

Inevitably it's a mixed bag. Only a few of the videos are truly memorable, and some tracks are prone to the redundant funk that covers much of electronica's landscape. Still, the highlights are atmospheric, and the lows are never really low. The Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim take top honors with tracks 1 and 2, and for sheer visceral pulse you've got Goldie, Crystal Method, and the Prodigy to kick your brains out with shock-sights and violence. That's all balanced out by the calmer tracks, notably the Indian groove of Talvin Singh. Dieselboy's video is a prime example of abstract audiovisual symbiosis, while Sly & Robbie's "Superthruster" is a treat for fans of sci-fi anime. It's a pity the directors aren't credited on screen, but that's a minor quibble. Kick back, hit Play All, and prepare to be dazzled. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars This is amazing quality! Visually stunning! July 6, 2000
What the Hell is Dean Halpern talking about! You dope, this DVD is Freaking Awesome! The videos are all awesome! And if you knew anything about Electronica, You'd know that these videos are not geared towards "Industrial" They are geared towards "Drum 'N Bass" I mean C'mon: Dieselboy, Goldie, Photek, Adam F! Hello! This DVD is very worth while, and is highly recomended, I have seen a ton of Techno videos, and I own about 600 Techno cds, so I know what is good, and this is! The Dieselboy and Technical Itch video for "Atlantic State" is alone worth the full price of this DVD. Along with Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim, oh yeah baby! And to see the Prodigy in full DVD quality, Priceless!

4.0 out of 5 stars The bad reviews are BIAS August 13, 2002
By Nam Pho
This is a great electronic videos collection. But I can see why some people only give it 2 stars. As I read some people reviews, it seem like they dont know what they are talking about. These are not your daytime "MTV videos". You would only see these videos on MTV if you are an insomiac who watches AMP around 2 A.M. For the trance listeners who made a complaint, what do you people expect on this dvd? Paul Okenfold, Paul van dyke, Sasha & Digweed? I think it is bias to write a bad review just because you are not a fan of a specific electronic genre like Drum N Bass. One reviewer trashed the dvd just because he wasn't interested in DnB. Any REAL drum n bass fans would appreciate Roni Size, Diesel Boy, Photek, Talvin Singh and Goldie even if some have better tracks than others.
I give this 4 stars because of my personal tastes. Eventhough I think Fat boy slim, Chemical brothers, Crystal method, and Prodigy are great on the DVD. I think their videos on this DVD are for a mainstream purpose since they target the average listners. This dvd would have taken a step further if it was to have Aphex Twin, Bjork, Portishead ect. But that is just me, i'm just a snob and going for that Indie/Break Through videos mentality.
Do buy this dvd or just stay up around 2 am hope MTV plays electronic music.

4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome break on DVD - why aren't there more like this? September 29, 2000
What is it about record/video companies that means they just don't seem to market video compilations? There is some stunning stuff out there but the majority of it is only seen a few times and never freely available. This disc starts to redress the balance. Music-wise, it contains a good cross section of current dance styles, and a variety of video production approaches too. On the musical side you have commercial breakbeat pop from Jacknife Lee, Fatboy Slim and Josh Wink; heavier breaks from the Chemicals and Prodigy; Drum & Bass in various forms from Dieselboy & Tech Itch, Photek, Mocean Worker, Roni Size, Goldie, and Adam F; and house/club from Underworld and Deep Dish/EBTG. Not to mention Talvin Singh, Sly & Robbie and others besides. The videos vary from garish pop (Jacknife lee) to moody black and white (Photek) with cleverness ratings that vary from the inspiration of ideas (Deep Dish, Photek) to the technical digi-tricks of Underworld and Reprazent. With beautifully rendered cartoons from Sly & Robbie, and high speed cut up clips from Mocean Worker, a huge range is represented here. The videos to be honest are not as groundbreaking as the best that Dance Music has to offer (see Bjork , Aphex Twin for inspiration in this area), but just to have a collection like this on the market is refreshing. My one remaining question - why is this not available outside the US except by mail order? - But overseas buyers take note, this disc is not region coded!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best sound on a DVD July 31, 2000
Besides the perfectly chosen videos, I think what makes this compilation a must have is its amazing sound quality. If you have an AC3 home theater system with this DVD you will know it was worth every penny. Add to this awesome visuals and great concepts (like the backgammon of love life depicted in ebtg's future of the future) and you'll agree with me that this DVD deserves the 5 stars.

If you are a Techno head like myself you might have a hard time tolerating American MTV. The alleged Music Television Network seems to have very little desire to showcase electronic music on the same scale as 'clay combat' or so called 'reality shows.' But this DVD shows that there is more out there than boy bands and bimbo blonde teenagers. This collection of various industrial, drum & bass and house is a refreshing look into the world of electronic music. I have seen here how people have called the content less than ground breaking. Let's face it though, the fact that it exists at all has broken some new ground. Have you seen any other DVDs like this one? I have looked pretty hard and have yet to find another.
The musical content is interestingly eclectic. From "Fat Boy Slim" to "Diesel Boy" you can see a fairly decent cross section of the electronic music scene at large. Don't expect to be blown away, it is not epic making, but it is well worth having if you want to add something different to your collection.
Ever since I got me DVD player I have looked for ways to maximize its potential. DVD is definitely where the future is going, there is little doubt of that, but how can one expand the DVD experience? Well, these music videos seem to be an unlikely answer but it works well. The high fidelity digital output sure does make the videos fun to watch and a new way to disturb the neighbors. If you want to try something really wild you can put this DVD on when entertaining for some light background visual and audio. At my last party it was an interesting conversation piece.
But what do I know? Check it out for yourself and make your own determination of its value. :)

I am getting machine drum nightmares after once around with this one. It's a bit much in one sitting. Sonic and visual it is, but even the worst movies have some storyline.
