This is the official Re-Release of the debut album by Ancient Astronauts, which was originally released on Thievery Corporation´s label ESL Music.
Here some selected international feedback quotes:
“Bridging the gap between library beats and straight-up club funk ain’t nothing but a Saturn Ring for the Ancient Astronauts. Prehistoric space explorers probably built the pyramids, so it’s no surprise that they’ve got the right stuff when it comes to making those moon booties bounce!”
Wax Poetics Magazine/USA
“Yes, this is a slice of great German hip hop.”
BBC Online (UK)
“The album is a beautiful slice of hip hop ingredients, dub-tinged spices and jazz chili sauces, all blended into a heady stew of breakbeat wonderfulness.”
“Like the album guys. Good job.”
DJ Vadim (Ninja Tune/BBE/UK)
“Peeped the CD, good stuff.”
Beni B (ABB Records/USA)
“The new album is EXCELLENT!!”
JonH (Fort Knox Five/USA)
"Melding old school hip hop, funk and dub-reggae with forward thinking flair and production, the duo of Kabanjak and Dogu come from Cologne with a fresh take on quality, contemporary hip hop with soul." Ibeats.co.uk
" The Ancient Astronauts bring a very refreshing sound to the table.
Being that I work in the music industry, I'm given a lot of music from
new artists....too much music from new artists. Majority of the CD's
I'm handed bore me after about 5 seconds, but the Ancient Astronauts'
music stands the test of "substance." They really capture a certain
vibe that is nostalgic to classic hiphop beats but with their own
twist. Their collages of sound really bring you to another world...a
world that I enjoy."
J57 (Fat Beats NY/Brown Bag AllStars/USA)
“a refreshing, genre defying, cross pollinating masterpiece”
Pathaan (BBC Asian Network/UK)
“Great album, great production!“
TM Juke (Tru Thoughts Recordings/UK)
“LOVE the album. everything, beats, arrangement, mastering, vocals. nice work.”
DJ Zeph (Om Records/USA)
“…'Everybody' is just wicked, rockin the dancefloors...”
Pete Isaac (Jelly Jazz/UK)
