"Reissued for the first time as a 2CD set, Get On Down's deluxe version of Souls Of Mischief's classic features the original album, as well as bonus remixes and instrumentals all bundled in a 36-page case book filled with art elements, liner notes, and interviews. The book even plays a clip from the title track when opened. Consisting of MCs A+, Phesto, Opio and Tajai (with production by A+, Domino, Del the Funky Homosapien, Jay Biz and Casual), East Oakland's Souls of Mischief burst onto the scene in the early '90s with an impact that few other West Coast artists had at the time. Culminating in the release of their classic debut, they created a bouillabaisse that was most parts West Coast swagger but -- similar to The D.O.C. and Cypress Hill -- with a sonic approach that could just as well have stepped off the streets of New York City. Put to tape in less than two weeks at San Francisco's Hyde Street Studios, 93 'til Infinity doesn't suffer from a single freshman jitter or misstep. It's a fully-realized effort, packed from start to finish with ridiculous lyricism -- all carried out in impressive four-part, tag-team style -- and backed by a wide range of musical possibilities, from hard boom-bap to '70s CTI-jazz-sprinkled grooviness. But without worthy music, the group's high-level lyricism could have fallen by the wayside. Digging deep into crates that other producers had yet to mine, the production crew gave the quartet exactly what they needed, with unpredictable rolling basslines, dusty drums and jazz keyboard and horn stabs and swirls."
