All Music Guide:
Chris Bowden kicked around the acid jazz circuit for years, performing with everyone from K-Creative to Jhelisa Anderson. After putting in his time with these acts, he developed a distinct voice that he would utilize on his first solo album, 1996's Time Capsule. The record, released on Soul Jazz, combined his love of space jazz and kitsch into one lengthy piece. Afterwards, he performed with 4hero and Basement Jaxx, among others, but he began to write for himself again. This eventually landed him back in the studio where he recorded 2002's Slightly Askew for Ninja Tune.
