Music Detected is the fifth album by the musical group Deep Forest. The record was released on May 14, 2002 via Saint George label.[1]

Background[edit]

On this album their trademark samples are nowhere to be heard; the group have worked in live conditions, giving priority to lyrics, David Fall's solid drum work and raging guitars. While their powerful electro world-beat is still in evidence, it now provides a driving force for genuine songs. There is still plenty of experimentation, especially on "Elemental", where the Southern accent of blueswoman Beverly Jo Scott blends admirably with the lyrical flights of a Turkish singer. Another example of cross-fertilisation is provided by "Will You Be Ready", where the voice of Angela McCluskey (the Wild Colonials singer and Telepopmusik diva) merges with the delicate tones of Chitose Hajime's Amami (an island south of Japan shores). On "Endangered Species" (the first single taken from the album), Eric Mouquet's vocoderised vocals pay tribute to Kraftwerk in yet another cross-genre experience where his robotised voice joins with singing from Bulgaria's Stefka Iordanova. Fashioned for the dance floor, the remix of "Endangered Species" is boosted by bass from Galleon, authors of hits such as "Believe" and "So I Begin". While the song Deep Blue Sea which experimented Far East sound, featured a guest vocal by Anggun who sang in both English and Bahasa Indonesia.
