Boomkat Product Review:
Amazing new Tigerbeat 6 CD from Wobbly. Drawn from commercial hip hop radio broadcasts in San Francisco from late 99 to early 02, it sounds like a hyper Cassette Boy meeting 'Attitude' era Kid 606 circa when hip hop plundering of this type was still fresh and dangerous. Incredibly cut up as you'd expect, not simply cut 'n pasted but time stretched, compressed, distorted out of all recognition but managing the retain flow - the true miracle of this whole CD. Inspiration came from John Oswald's acts of sonic piss takes but this CD is no cheese fest, it's as deadly serious as John Cage's classic early experiments and as vital and current as if Missy would be, getting jiggy with Autechre. The official boom diggy shit for the brave. Essential.
