"Since 1996, there has been the emergence of a new sound in dance music, one that places more emphasis on Latin, African and jazz elements than straight 4/4 beats. This global dance movement can in many ways be traced to Joe Claussell, perhaps the most significant figure to arrive on the scene since the Masters at Work. The backlash came in 2001, when music critic Simon Reynolds described this sound as 'all that awfully dreary Afro-Brazilian influenced house'." --Sholem Stein
