Highbrow hip-hop.

This Miami quartetís debut LP caused barely a ripple in hip-hopís waters, but if Evolution Flight goes the same way it wonít be for lack of merit. Though hindered by rudimentary engineering, the production is richly detailed, peppered with melodic flourishes and hypnotic rhythms, while the rappers exchange uplifting self-help lyrics. Anyone who thought hip-hop no longer tangles with weighty themes will be perplexed to see a track called Rousseau, on which the Enlightenment philosopher is reinterpreted through hip-hopís prism.

Steve Yates 25 August 05 rating of 3 and 1/2
Cyne - Evolution Flight, released 29 August 05 on City Centre Offices.
