Beats Antique’s newest EP, Contraption vol. II, is another experimental tangle of genres that incites vivid imagery and an urge to dance. The heavy dub basslines splashed with world inspired melodies are familiar from Beats Antique’s previous albums; however, Contraption vol. II seems to tell a darker story, with only occasional glimpses of the happier grooves reminiscent of previous songs such as Roustabout.

The album opens with “The Allure”, in which bells and a violin playing an airy melody are violently interrupted after 30sec when heavy hip-hop drums roar in over the top. This concoction of heavy bass topped with floating high notes, along with suggestive starts, stops and sudden direction changes, sets the scene for the album.

“Crooked Muse” featuring Lynx, strays from the usual path. With an absence of electronic tracking and Lynx’s seductive drawl a key feature, “Crooked Muse” is a meandering ballad telling of a tragic love.

The final two tracks, “Busto Balkans” and “Bloody Bones”, bring back the circusy tones that feature in many of Beats Antique’s previous works; however a darker story still prevails, with minor tones and sad laughter interrupting the nostalgic circus jingles and weaving the final tracks into the feel of the rest of the album.

All in all Contraption vol. II is a successful continuation of Beats Antique’s musical experiments that, with its muddle of genres, instruments and sounds, showcases the talents of the worldly multi-instrumentalists that are Beats Antique. While Contraption vol. II does have more minor undertones and invoke images of a darker world than Beats Antique’s previous works, it is still thoroughly dancable and 100% enjoyable.

In regards to my previous post

Something sent a little tingle down my spine when I got word of the second installment of Cuts of Culture from Turntable Radio and Eclectic Breaks.

A tingle turned into a shiver when I saw the track listing on Turntable Radio. This album holds a strong list of turntablist talent and is being released by two labels with a strong history of high quality turntablism releases. Cuts of Culture 2 is bound to be a turntablist release of note.

Check out the trailer for the upcoming Cuts of Culture 2:

More info is available at Turntable Radio, Eclectic Breaks as well as Spinscience and DJ 2Tall’s Website.

I will hopefully be posting a review of this album upon its release. I also have a few other turntablism album reviews up my sleeve – so keep an eye out over the next couple of months.

Cuts of Culture 2

Various Artists: ‘Cuts Of Culture 2’

The Podcasts

Eclectic Breaks and Turntable Radio are proud to announce the much anticipated second edition of ‘Cuts of Culture’, the latest installment of our forward thinking compilation series aimed at showcasing the musical talents of turntablists worldwide. The highly successful first volume of ‘Cuts of Culture’ was released in 2005. It was the first ever compilation of its kind with a global line-up of musical talent, including A-Trak, C2C and D-Styles amongst many others. The CD is still selling today and has been incredibly well received by the press, DJs and public alike.

‘Cuts of Culture 2’ returns even bigger and better than before, and is packed with extra content such as video footage, scratch beats and bonus tracks. The project was originally planned as a CD/DVD package, however due to unforeseen problems we were forced to switch format and will now be making the majority of the content from this package available, for free, as a series of podcasts starting in July 2007.

These ‘Cuts of Culture 2’ podcasts will include 6 exclusive videos, bonus tracks, scratch beats, full liner notes and artwork, plus of course the compilation mix from 2tall, featuring more worldwide talent, both known and unknown. This podcast series is the first of its kind and showcases the best of what the turntablist world has to offer in the last few years – from hip hop to glitch, jungle to electronica and house, quality music that just happens to be made using turntables.

The compilation mix features even more worldwide talent than volume 1: from Japan to South Africa, Eastern Europe to the US West Coast. Exclusive tracks come from established and upcoming artists including D-Styles (Third Sight, ex-ISP, ex-Beat Junkies), ieMERG (2xDMC World Champ), Netik (2006 DMC World Champ), DJ Happee, Excess (Styluswars), Dq (Glue) and many more. ‘Cuts of Culture 2’ also highlights the production work of these artists, with established producers including Trash Weston (The Orb), Bichi (Blue Foundation), Exile (Emanon, Mobb Deep), Evil Ed and Bayaka (Japan), all appearing on exclusive collaboration tracks. Finally, following on from volume 1’s ‘Operation Interference’ scratch collaboration project, 2tall delivers ‘Sharpshooters Convention’ featuring Enfoe, Taim, Unkut, Square One, Netik, Captain Cavern and Rafik.

The podcast videos feature DJ Quietstorm (US/Japan), DJ Baku (Japan), Grazzhoppa’s DJ Big Band (Belgium/Holland), 2tall (UK) and Noisy Stylus (Germany). These videos aim to represent the scope of what these artists can do live and in the studio.

Turntable Radio is the world’s only radio show entirely dedicated to the turntablist artform. Since its inception, the show has grown tremendously in popularity, with a worldwide following of some 40,000 listeners tuning in from over 40 countries. Both the radio show and website are focal points for the scene, and have evolved alongside the music and its practitioners. Eclectic Breaks is a multi-faceted music company based in London, specialising in audio productions, club promotions, DJ tuition and street marketing. Eclectic Breaks is widely recognised as the UK’s leading ‘DJ’ company, due to its unwavering commitment to DJ culture. EB also developed the acclaimed Pro X Fade, a high quality, cross-platform, customisable scratch crossfader that has revolutionised the market.

Cuts of Culture 2 is the last instalment in the series – the final statement from Turntable Radio & Eclectic Breaks about the state of things in today’s turntablist world. This is not about DJ battles or who can scratch better than who… this is about the skills and talents of DJs, turntablists and producers worldwide, who are too often overlooked by the media and mainstream radio, and the music they make. The ultimate aim is to show various styles in production and music making from various countries… what they all have in common is the use of the turntable as just another instrument or production tool.

‘Cuts of Culture 2’ is an unmissable multi-media package that represents the true voice and sound of turntablism today!
