Boomkat Product Review:
Maestro of the sampler Carl Stone goes on a mad joyride with his most hooligan-friendly decimations skidding wildly into drill ’n bass territory
Ever unpredictable, but predictably brilliant, Carl Stone has evidently had something of a second wind in recent years with a rush of amazing new works and retrospectives that set him out as a truly overlooked avant-garde innovator of a singular calibre with a bold catalogue stretching back to the early ‘80s. From beguiling pop cut-ups to glitching transformations of South East Asian folk, his music knows few bounds beyond what is possible with his sampler and software, resulting some of the most spellbinding contributions to the glitch/electronic/avant garde world out there, and this new one is flipping outstanding.
Booting off with something like a $hit & $hine hoe-down in the smashed Bonham break ballistics of ’Pasjoli’, he cuts loose between something like Squarepusher-meets-Coil in ‘Huancho’, and one of his masterfully twisted pop chop-ups in ‘Au Jus’, and does the same with folk music in ‘The Jugged Hare’, while drawing out something deeply uncanny from whatever pop tune he’s razzing out in ‘Ganci’, and pretty much emulating the effect of listening to the Panda Bear after a balloon and big slug of K in the mind-bending ‘Saaris’. It’s all more than our RDA of psychoactive sonic substance and we love it.
