Like the title, much of what Eshun does here is bring us back to those intimate moments in recent and distant past and highlight the unforeseen outcomes and influences in the bodies of work of those that came before, via interpretation, stimulation or simply to just snap into the world around us. This is a fiercely intellectual take on African diaspora through music and visual The title of the book refers to the hook of a UK breakbeat record entitled "Valley of the Shadows" or "31 seconds". This is a fiercely intellectual take on African diaspora through music and visual culture and in various ways, draws interesting comparisons in the 20th century.

Ever since the advent of sound generated by machines rather than traditional instruments, there have been dire predictions about the death of the Song. More Brilliant Than The Sun takes the opposite attitude and celebrates these strange new technologically-based forms of music, examining what they signal for the future. His interest is primarily cerebral, exploring the new conceptual ideas produced by mutant strains of music.

The sometimes life-changing impact on listeners by artists such as Kraftwerk, Sun Ra and Parliament has been dumbed down rather than discussed. Similarly, the technology itself also opens up new ideas. The way that the sampler confuses musical history by raiding and redesigning the past to construct the present makes technological music shift away from any idea of history or heritage.
