“Hypnotic, trancy beats that rise and fall with knowing intensity are complemented by pulsing rhythms and beautifully controlled didg textures. The album is deeply infused with low bass and dub sounds, but it’s the unique indigenous instruments and excerpts of vocalising that imbue Xenophon with such an unusual flavour. Understated brilliance. (4 stars)” Lauren Zoric. Rolling Stone, September 1998"
In TRAVELLING SONGS (1994) the song titles say it all; ‘Pig Wobble’, ‘Ride’, ‘Scramble’, ‘Stampede’. The didj riffs are fast, strong, and melodies express the exhilaration of travelling. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) dubbed it ‘jazz goes walkabout’. Besides the pacey didj riffs there’s chunky keyboard, wild saxophone and solid drum playing.
