Total Science Mars Needs Total Science
- Words: Ryan Romana
- Label: CIA
Oxford‘s Q-Project and Spinback, better known to the D&B world as Total Science, have been twisting styles and dropping timeless anthems for over a decade. Returning from a part-time residency in Philadelphia, PA, the duo releases their fourth album with more dancefloor killas like "Never Had a Dream" and "Squash" (Gridlok Remix), but drip their Philly soul experience with syrupy nu-jazz numbers like "Wasting Time," featuring Little Brother's Phonte and the J Dilla-esque "Vibe." Mars Needs Total Science is the boys' most adventurous album to date, but not their most cohesive one.
