Ammoncontact New Birth
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Ninja Tune
Ahhhhh. There‘s nothing like soaking in Carlos Nino and Fabian Ammon‘s spare machine funk for an hour or so to clear the War on Terror cobwebs. The kinetic bass of New Birth chillers like "A Satellite‘s Return" and "Omniverses" can send you into a deep trance-the stripped-down grooves of the duo‘s latest are totally conducive to minimalist mind trips, wherever you‘re taking them. Things pick up somewhat when rapper Lil Sci pontificates in earnest about race and reparations on "My People," but New Birth, Ammoncontact‘s first joint for Ninja Tune, is a mostly laid-back affair with beats to spare.
