As One - Planetary Folklore

Label: Mo' Wax
Year: 1997
Styles: Ambient Techno, IDM, Jazz-House

Review: (

Planetary Folklore is a sparkling synthesis of Degiorgio's percussion-heavy early Detroit material with the exploratory Afro-grooves of Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi period and contemporary work by Pharoah Sanders. The title track and "The Path of Most Resistance" make deft use of some hair-triggered percussion samples, while "Amalia's Mode" and "Libran Legacy" are solid summations of Degiorgio's inspiration from the early-'70s intersection of free jazz and electronics.
