Illumination This Is Illumination
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Logic 3000-BMG
Illumination's debut is an ambitious-if at times inconsistent-collection of tracks. This Norwegian duo made a name for themselves through their solo projects and remix work under the Chilluminati tag; their Bugge Wesseltoft rework should be required listening for any downtempo DJ. Now working under the guise of Illumination, the two shift gears to produce an album that's at times aimed squarely at the dancefloor and at others better suited for after-hours listening. High points include the irresistibly funky bass line that underpins "She Got Soul," the zero-g drift of "Black Sun" and the dub atmospherics and reverberating rimshots of "4 A.M."
