The actual solo debut for Ashley Beedle
is a fusion of Afrocentric jazz textures and tribal-disco rhythms with science-fiction mythology gained from equal parts Sun Ra
and Juan Atkins
. It's perhaps the least danceable album his name has been attached to, though much like the contemporary work of Kirk Degiorgio's As One
(the vastly similar Planetary Folklore
had been released two months earlier), Future Ju-Ju
expanding his stylistic reference points so as to encompass the dancefloor, not leave it behind.
