AllMusic Review by Craig Robert Smith
Breaking new ground in 1997, the release of Deep Concentration furthered hip-hop's turntablist movement by showcasing its brightest talents. This is primarily an instrumental album, with most of the vocals provided by a deejay's quick scratch on a piece of vinyl. Cutting tracks are abundant, like the lively selections from the X-Men, Prince Paul, and Peanut Butter Wolf with the Beat Junkies. Cut Chemist of rap group Jurassic 5 and the Latin outfit Ozomatli lends "Lesson 6 The Lecture," a bouillabaisse of drum kicks and spoken-word snippets that offer a course in turntable madness. No sample is off limits to these deejays -- everything from Tibetan monks (Radar's "Radar Frees Tibet") to water droplets (Ingrid De Lambre and Eddie Def's "Poeisies, Scene 1 Le Blues") are stunningly pieced together to form new compositions. Also includes a bonus CD-ROM mixing program.
