Deep Puddle Dynamics was a collaborative group featuring Sole, Alias, Doseone and Slug. In 1999, they released their album The Taste of Rain... Why Kneel on anticon.

Tracks 1 through 8 were recorded in one week in late June, 1998. Tracks 9 through 12 were recorded a year later, in the same time frame.

Slug has been quoted as saying that Jel, who programmed the beats for tracks 5, 7, and 8, "can program an amazing beat on his EMU SP 1200 sampler in 5 minutes." [1]

"The Taste Of Rain...Why Kneel" is part of Cokemachineglow's Top 60 Albums of the 2000s, appearing in the Honourable Mentions section.

The album's name is a "western" haiku by Jack Kerouac.
