Counterflow (2001)

Check out this cybernetic dolphin!

This is the 12" single from the Secret Frequency Crew's 2001 record Underwater Adventure Hop Secret Treasure. The album art and design are great: illustrations of this crazy underwater civilization with an army of cybernetic dolphins like this one and futuristic subs and stuff. The music is even better. Instrumental hip-hop with weird sound effects, a watery vibe and crisp production. It's one of those albums that when I'm in the mood to hear it, it's the only thing that will do the trick. Mysterious, shimmery, cinematic, great beats; hard to top it. The followup album to this, Forest of Echo Downs, is also pretty good, but in my book it's this one that's a classic. The 12" also has an Anti-Pop Consortium mix on it for good measure.
