I’m under the impression that beat-kids and mixers and producers all use samples in terms of respect. Like, when you heard certain looped vocals or split beats, these people aren’t intentionally trying to shit on the prior art, but make it “modern.” Which, coming from New York, and seeing the landscape (always building up) and hearing the sounds (crate diggers GALORE), there’s a similarity in architecture. It’s built upon. There’s never really room for expansion unless you leave the confines of NYC or Long Island or Jersey City. Then Salisbury, United Kingdom gets a taste of reappropriators — specifically: 9th Wonder, Jurassic 5, Poptartpete, Ohbliv, Pete Rock, J. Dilla, Dil Withers, MF DOOM, A Tribe Called Quest, Flying Lotus, and Jaylib — and gives ‘em the 〄 DJM 〄 trio new-language cave art treatment.
Christ Hund (Paxico Records CEO and bit-artist) has seriously been buggin’ since this Summer on 〄 DJM 〄 trio vibes. They even do deep deep live sessions that are undeniably talented. Not to say the original songs covered in cave art aren’t pure music progress, but 〄 DJM 〄 trio definitely nodded along to the point of new-return. And they’re finally been released to the world! Find the tape HERE HERE HERE, including a ritual candle and download code. They’re shippin’ quick too, so don’t sleep on these tunes until you’re reeling it bedside!
