All Saints Records celebrate their 22nd year with this timely re-release of Jon Hassell's City: Works Of Fiction, a milestone of world music originally put out by Brian Eno's label Opal. Combining varying instrumentation with seamless beats, it still sounds as crisp and commanding as ever: chattering 808s, acid bass, and Hassell's signature trumpet are apparent on 'Voiceprint', while 'Mombassa' bursts with bongos and ambient keys and 'Freeway' rolls jauntily along on breezy bass strums and playful percussive elements. A pristine slice of electronic history.
