"Cristian Vogel and Jamie Lidell, two of electronica's most respected and talented producers, joined forces in 1997 to form Super_Collider. It has taken almost three years since their explosive debut Head On in 1999 to complete, but finally Super_Collider are back with the incredible, surprising second album Raw Digits. Maybe we have a future classic on our hands. The album was three years in making and recorded in Brighton, Berlin and Barcelona. Whilst Head On could be summed up by the word 'funk', 'Raw Digits' is pure soul -- but with the uber-innovative production twists you would expect from this duo. It represents an exploration by Christian and Jamie into the deep, smooth sound of Super_Collider. 'Messagesacomin' (which features on the first 12", with remixes by Chungking and MDK) opens the album, followed by the paranoid squelch funk of 'close tails'. The freaks rule on 'Bug Trackin''. The beautiful, heartbreaking 'Gravity Rearrangin,' features the lightening fingers of Matthew Herbert on bass keyboard. 'Soily Soul' slinks on dub-tronica style. 'Spillin Visions' is pure Collider, production perfect, with blissful vocals. 'In The Beams' is next with its clicky restlessness and space is the place lyrics. 'Radianations On The Rise' tells an often told tale of arrogance in high style. The album finishes with the gothic R 'n'B masterpiece that is 'Collide'n'Conquer'. Raw Digits throws up recurring phrases that please and perturb by turns. After listening to this you will feel like you've been somewhere...else."
