A part of NYC's illbient downtempo hip-hop scene for almost a decade, DJ Wally continues to explore the now-forgotten textures of stoney trip-hop. A shade more developed through the use of more spoken-word samples, the beats limp lethargically through almost 20 tracks, caught between sluggish ambience, non-conceptual samples and very gentle breaks. "Stringsnsthings" at least lunges with big-beat bravado and a seething, stringy atmosphere, while "Yes It's True" has a pleasant skittishness. Devoid of attitude or innovation, Emulatory Whoredom merely is.
