Album Review

Over the past few years, the fraternity of Dabrye, Scott Herren, Four Tet, Manitoba and Nobody has formed a rat pack of its own. Blending crunchy glitch music with dense hip-hop beats and sensibilities, the group has solidified itself as not only a viable force in the electronic music community, but it has won over indie-rock purists and alternative hip-hop fans in the process. For And Everything Else..., Nobody invites a few of his friends together for this friendly 12-song session. Much like Herren under his Prefuse and Savath + Savalas alter egos, Nobody takes a very pop-friendly, song-oriented approach to much of the material. Starting off with a cover of the Flaming Lips' "What Is the Light?," Nobody sets the tone for an erratic journey through a series of collaborations that sometimes works very well and at other times misses the bar slightly. The attention to detail Nobody uses throughout is staggering, especially on "You Can Know Her," which sounds like a distant cousin to labelmate Dntel's "Anywhere Anyone." It's not groundbreaking material, but And Everything Else... finishes with the feeling that Nobody has truly yet to show anyone how much ground he has truly broken while everyone else wasn't looking.

Not a fan of "Electronic"

Just a generally happy album that makes me want to smile and cry all at the same time.

Why don't you know NOBODY??

The only thing I did not like about "And Everything Else" was that it was as advertised. What I mean is, the album title concedes it is going to be a hodgepodge of different tracks DJ Nobody produced that just didn't fit with his other albums. Case in point the abstract "Poor Angular Fellow."

The first track "The Coast is Clear..." was the highlight for me. "What is the Light" was the second track and had a Moby-like feel to it. I'm not sure if it was the large sound with the choral background vocals (reminiscent of "Why Does My Heart Feel so Bad") or the male vocalist's monotone delivery. The organ part on the keys adds to that big sound and provides a great outtro.

I also enjoyed "Wake Up and Smell the Millennium" which is an uptempo track with a catchy harpsichord melody done on the keys. Sounded a lot like a David Holmes (one of my favorite electronic artists) work with the retro-sounding drum track. "Siesta Con Susana" is a beautiful stripped down track with beautiful guitar work which brought images of laying on a beach watching the sunset.

"You Can Know Her" has a very chill hip-hop groove to it with some nice acoustic guitar and a beautiful female vocal part.

I highly recommend checking out all of DJ Nobody's albums. His sound is unique and you will have to listen multiple times to take in all of the wonderful sounds.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Born Elvin Estrela, the boy who would become producer Nobody grew up in Los Angeles, exchanging hip-hop mixtapes with his friends in high school, hanging out at the Good Life Café, and listening to a lot of different music, from rap to '60s psychedelia to electronica, all of which influenced him later on. As an artist he chose to focus on using samples to create his own work, and in 2000 his full-length debut, Soulmates, which featured MCs like Abstract Rude and 2Mex, among others, came out on Ubiquity....
