BACK TO MINE is a consistently high-caliber series of mix discs made by the movers and shakers of the contemporary electronica scene. This one features picks and flawless sequencing from Lamb's Andy Barlow, whose choices are highly eclectic, yet amazingly of a piece. The enigmatic "Intro" by trip-hop diva Martina Topley-Bird sets the tone effectively, leading the listener into a thicket of tribal sounds ("Dinosaur's Lament" by African Headcharge), hoodoo voodoo ("I Walk on Gilded Splinters" by Dr. John), and club-ready snake-charmer meditations (a remix of "Shashkin" by Omar Faruk Tekbilek).
A dark, brooding, minor-key mood prevails, even on Chris Thomas King's cover of the Skip James classic "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues" (from the O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? soundtrack) and the remix of the mesmerizing Nina Simone workout "See-Line Woman." Lamb's penchant for edgier breakbeat activity is acknowledged on "Sacred Space" by Hipoptimist (one of Barlow's projects) and Drome's driving "Hoax (What Did You Got?)," before the album closes with a beautiful field recording from MALI MUSIC. Like other BACK TO MINE entries, Barlow's album is suited for chilled-out home listening, a party soundtrack, or almost any club or bar.
