Boomkat Product Review:
Epstein is Roberto Carlos Lange, best known for his work as Boom & Birds. As explained on the slightly dry sleevenotes/instrument listing, these 17 little experiments were built from dusty vinyl drum hits sampled through an MPC 2000xl, synced with sounds from an Arp Odyssey and Wurlitzer and morphed in a matrix of hardware FX units. Of course with this being Epstein there's some magic in the mix, deftly manipulating his sonic blocks until they crumble into loping, strange little beat creatures kinda resembling the LA psyche sound, but with a more intuitive, unfussy lo-fi strut. Comes with free download coupon redeemable from the label.
