> groupies to begin with.
>   Since then, the Meat Beat cut and paste sound, drawing on disparate

> everything from trip-hop to jungle. Subsequent releases went on to
> explore even less conventional aesthetics, and writers (including this
> one) still struggle to define this album. But, like Michael Jackson said

> Also, I'm sure to no ones surprise, in the same issue - Charts section,
> Z-trip has MBM - What is Hip? listed in his top 10.
