〄 DJM 〄 Trio
“Paine” (Poptartpete cover) / “Koolout Ish” (Ohbliv cover)

Reappropriation levels are off the CHARTS these days. To be honest, I HATE kitche cover band shit, like Bad Plus. However, 〄 DJM 〄 Trio goes more than hard on the beat scene cover band niche. Like, Poptartpete and Ohbliv are already on some re-trope’ic levels of taking something “made” and then “making” it theirs. How does 〄 DJM 〄 Trio respond? Making the beat scene theirs via keyboard, bass, and drum-kit. Insanely-so, they nail it down to the very melody sound-pitch/key. I can’t take it. It’s sorta what Prism Corp did with vaporwave.

Main-man at Paxico, Chris, traded me the new 〄 DJM 〄 Trio this weekend for a DJ DJ Tanner tape at the Cassette Store Day swap-meet, and the fellah GEEKED about the excellence of the new cave art tape. We listened to it on the way home to Long Island and felt the GEEK-OUT, as well. And it’s coming soon — one-sided straight-forward program, B-side is a softer version of A-side, only played backward, including a secret track (!!!!!!!!!!) — to the dynasty of Paxico, so keep your eyes peeled and listen to greatness below:
