Digital Underground: Space Oddities

Push, Melody Maker, 16 September 1989

"LOTS OF PEOPLE have said we're similar to De La Soul simply because we're with the same record company in America and we both have an alternative perception of hip hop. But the fact that we're both trying to do something new with rap doesn't mean we have the same ideas. Digital Underground do not sound anything like De La, nor do we have a concept to match all that stuff about the Daisy Age. With Digital Underground, we're talking about a totally different kind of oddity."
