Nostramus would probably do better just sticking with one style, but Earthlights is a solid run-through all aspects of '90s breakbeat.

Nostramus' debut, EARTHLIGHTS, kicks off with the dub'n'bass of "Babel," which at one time was called jungle (you can hear more of it on "Live 'n' Direc'"). Let's Fuck It Up" is much lighter on its feet, though it's not afraid of the bass one bit, while the vocals on "Dark Jewel" go much more in the R&B direction. The title track zips into outer space momentarily, but the ethnic rumble that starts "Mystic Drum And Space" brings us back down to earth quickly. But the real gem on this album is "The Oohs," which takes a single vocal sample and makes it almost drifts over the beats. It does take a darker turn, of course, but it retains its sense of wonder. Not bad, if slightly dated.

Turns out the EP was four re-mixes from this album, which I'd completely missed. A copy of it magically appeared one day in one of those Secret Places (don't tell me you don't have one of your own) and I walked off with this precious piece of plastic. There is a certain amount of redundancy between songs, and not all of them are killer, but the stand-outs really stand out. Sweet rolling, strumming, rubbery happiness. Don't think this is going to the big pop crossover album that Substance undoubtedly wants it to but, but it's a sunny day in your pocket.
