Virgin's fourth Ambient volume is the first of all-new material from contemporary artists, and it provides the most highlights of any in the series. Tracks from a score of crucial new-ambient producers, including Aphex Twin, Seefeel, O'Rang, EAR, Main, Final, Lull, Labradford, Techno Animal, Scorn and Paul Schütze. Seeing as each track is available only on this collection, it became the hardest-to-find of the entire series soon after its release.
'The Story of Funk: One Nation Under a Groove' is a documentary telling the story of the history of funk music. In the 1970s in America, it became a nation under a spell of irresistible new style of music. It bursts into the black community under a time of self-discovery, struggle and social change. The documentary explores the fun and futuristic music that had changed America with its new edge to the meaning of culture with fashion, space-age vision and street-wise slang. The change also gave a platform for a new philosophy, belief system and lifestyle for the black-Americans.
