Spy From Cairo An Eye On the World
- Words: Rob Riddle
- Label: Stoned Asia
Experienced global citizen turned digital dub provocateur Moreno "Zeb" Visini (half of Organic Grooves) makes the connection between his heart, his mind and your ears with this absolutely gorgeous album. Floating vocals and distant, pretty instrumentation lend the work a vaguely exotic and mysterious ambience. "Spacewalk" travels through the stratosphere, hovering several miles above an old Persian caf? and bouncing that ancient chill out vibration off the satellites, while "Don't Panic I'm Islamic" documents Zeb's feelings on post-9/11 American culture. An Eye on the World remains strong from beginning to end, influenced by internationalist downtempo while charting its own rich, haunting sonic territory.
