Bursting onto the rap scene in 1993, Digable Planets arrived with an afrofuturist aesthetic, rooted in the art and philosophy of the Black Panthers.

Digable Planets followed in the conscious footsteps of the ’90s New York collective Native Tongues-spearheaded by A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, and De La Soul-which was cultivating a more positive-minded, jazz-influenced rap community. This awareness pays off on Time & Space (A New Refutation Of), where each verse latches into the next, every MC propelling the one that comes after. The other members even give Butterfly the chance to do a few solo cuts, somehow never sucking the wind out of the group’s sail.

Digable Planets do sound cool. I’ll give them Dat. This album, as ridiculous as its full title may be, has the monotone rappers vibing over an array of hip-hop beats inspired by jazz and funk. Okay, inspired is an understatement. Every track, song or otherwise, includes an old sample from a funk or jazz record. That puts the word New in quotation marks and slaps a big question mark on the trio’s perceived talent. Good To Be Here is my jam though.

Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space) is the debut album by American hip hop group Digable Planets, released in 1993 on Pendulum and Elektra Records. It was produced entirely by group member Butterfly, who utilises jazz samples throughout the album. The tone of the album is less overtly political than its sucessor Blowout Comb, but still touches on issues such as abortion rights and the drug abuses of jazz musicians.
