Album Review

Originally released on Britain's Blue Juice late in 2001, DJ Spooky's "Catechism" single re-appeared in America on Synchronic a little less than a year later, padded out with an assortment of vocal, instrumental, and a cappella remixes. The single itself, an oppressive beat symphony, matches the menace of guest rapper Killah Priest (of Wu-Tang fame), only turning up the dial on the paranoia as the track progresses. And the remixes aren't just reversions but practically new tracks, with fresh raps on most every one: Part 2's horn-heavy, beat-precise version, scratchmaster Deckwrecka's ragga post-production (featuring MCD and 2Ice), and the version by Mex (Black Grass) (aka Clockwork Voodoo Freaks). A refreshing turn away from Spooky's illbient and jazz projects of 2002. (Note: Skip past the instrumental versions and you'll find the last track, a nice tech drum'n'bass remix.)

Biography

Born: 06 September 1970 in Washington D.C.

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s

DJ Spooky (That Subliminal Kid) is the most noted (and notorious) proponent of turntablism, an approach to hip-hop and DJing whose philosophy merges avant-garde theories of musique concrète with the increased devotion paid to mixing techniques during the 1990s. Though he's overly intellectual at times (to the detriment of his recordings, interviews, and mixing dates), Spooky was a critical figure in spotlighting the DJ as a post-modern poet in his own right.
