Preceded by a string of well received 12”s and EP’s the album was eagerly anticipated and Aim delivered in a big way, elevating his trademark sound to new heights with a collection of uplifting cinematic soundscapes, dark jazz fuelled breaks and hard hitting hip-hop beats (featuring guest rap legends QNC, AG and YZ). Uniquely, there was a sense of nostalgic sentimentality running through the record and the whole thing was underpinned by a musicality often missing in sample based production. A demo found its way to Manchester’s Grand Central Records who signed him soon after. During his eight years with the label he released the acclaimed albums ‘ Cold Water Music’, ‘ Hinterland’ and ‘ Means of Production’, along with a number of sought after 12″s including the ‘ Pacific North West EP’ and the ‘ Loop Dreams Remix EP’. Cold Water Music is the debut studio album by British musician Aim, released on 11 October 1999 by Grand Central Records. The album was re-issued in 2007 by ATIC Records.

Mixmag called it “ a timeless retrospective of [Aim’s] best beats… reminding us of the haunting crisp aesthetics and cinematic breaks and samples that defined an era,” whilst Record Collector lamented “ as we reach the mid-point of the album, it [Cold Water Music] rises from the surrounding countryside like a national monument to melancholia.”
