Matt Elliott’s first release under the Third Eye Foundation moniker now sits at a full two decades ago. What is most striking is the fact that, considering how deeply rooted in the era drum 'n' bass/jungle music sounds now, Semtex is largely still as fresh sounding today as it was then. Because of less reliance on the overused "Amen" and "Funky Drummer" loops (though they appear), Elliott produced a work with significantly more depth and nuance, which is why it seems much more timeless than its contemporaries.

In 1996, he finally released his first album as The Third Eye Foundation, Semtex, on his own label with support from Domino Recordings. Semtex was an album i heard when it was released,i liked it but did not really play it much. Now 20 years later ive been playing this all the time. The real revelation is the bonus material over 3 hours. None of it feels like it was not good enough for the album,this is a treasure trove to get lost. i. lying Saucer Attack may have tread a similar path,but this is much darker and more rewarding. This is an essential purchase.

Notes

Semtex 20th anniversary reissue. 2xLP gatefold. Includes a download voucher with complete download + 15 digital extra tracks. Total running time : 4:19:24

The extra tracks are a mixture of various demos recorded from around 1991 until around 1997. Many of the early demos were transferred from the original cassette tapes that have been kept in various places over the last 20 years and subject to all temperatures and levels of humidity and as such some of the fidelity has been lost. These were restored and remastered by Anders Peterson with a view to keeping as much of the original sound as possible and as a result there are various hisses, crackles & dropouts.
