Recording for the Cookin' offshoot of LTJ Bukem's Looking Good/Good Looking Records, Poets of Thought (actually just one man, Paul Hunter) brought the sound of jazzy hip-hop to the British drum'n'bass scene, with recordings mostly free of breakbeats at all. Given a chance to shine on Bukem's late-1996 compilation Earth, Vol. 1, Hunter responded with two diverse tracks, one a piece of blunted hip-hop and another a surprisingly accurate interpretation of '60s Latin-tinged soul-jazz.
