Album Review

To simply label Andrew Weatherall a DJ would be to sell him short, considering the amount of work he's done as a producer, remixer, and recording artist over the years, but nevertheless, it's true that the art and aesthetic of the DJ is at the core of everything that he does. Accordingly, it's Weatherall's mixes that probably offer the most accurate and intimate portrait of what makes him tick. With that in mind, the three-CD Masterpiece would seem to be not only the mother of all Weatherall mixes, but the most intensely focused peek into the British beatmeister's own heart of hearts.

Anyone who has even a passing familiarity with Weatherall's work can guess that over the course of such a lengthy mix, there's no shortage of eclecticism to found from tune to tune. By this point, it almost seems like a cliché to tout the wide range of styles to be found within Masterpiece's three discs — yes, Weatherall does end up tapping into everything from Nick Cave's garage rock group Grinderman and neo-psychedelicists Wooden Shjips to Danish dance-pop maven Kasper Bjorke and ‘80s pop outfit A.R. Kane; still, the important thing is not so much Weatherall's sources but what he makes of them. The fact that he manages to transmogrify all these disparate elements into something so sonically seamless as the Masterpiece megamix is what's really impressive. If you're not paying close attention, it's often tough to even identify where one piece exits and another one enters the mix. Weatherall apparently set himself a goal of keeping everything midtempo as well, so it all adds up to a rather hypnotic experience, an epic mix that moves through many moods without blowing its vibe. ~ J.

WOW!

Weatherall is like this milleniums Vangelis.
Hypnotic funk rock at its best!

Showing everyone else how it's done

Already my favourite album of 2012! An awesome mix of bass, beats and cosmic sounds, one of the true legends of electronica has returned to show the new pretenders how it's done. Truly is a masterpiece.

Pure genius..!

The guy is a genius. Long anticipated release that hits all the spots.

When does he take over the John Peel show?

Biography

Born: 06 April 1963 in Windsor, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Andrew Weatherall carved out a well-respected career in British techno. As a producer moving from the sounds of Madchester to downbeat to experimental techno through the '90s, Weatherall could've easily ridden the big beat (Chemical Brothers) or high-profile DJ (Oakenfold) waves at the end of the decade, choosing instead to pursue — and in many ways define — a more cutting-edge, IDM approach. He participated in two big-name collaborations...
