Album Review

A mix to file right alongside 2008's Uproot (and not just because it's also from DJ/rupture), Solar Life Raft finds Jace Clayton's DJ/rupture and Matt Shadetek doing what they've done better than any other, at least in America: find the overlap between dubstep and the avant-garde. Granted, individual moments of brilliance may be hard to pick out from the musical morass: warped, mutating effects with straining sub-bass and the lurching flow of a dubstep track, plus various chatters, singers, and poets briefly surfacing and straining to escape all the post-production they've obviously been subjected to. Eventually, highlights emerge, including frequent links to the avant-garde: a spoken-word piece of poet Caroline Bergvall's hypnotic index of animals (titled "More Pets"), Nico Muhly's "Mothertongue" (a haunted track of Steve Reich-style vocal-sample minimalism), and a very short excerpt from Luc Ferrari. Both DJ/rupture and Matt Shadetek contribute a few productions or remixes themselves, alongside friends like Timeblind and Jahdan Blakkamoore.

Customer Reviews

Tracks 1 & 2 worth $10 ALONE

Space Cadet, Strength in Numbers and For the Souls are two of the most monstrous displays of dub brutality i've EVER heard. I'm buying the whole album to give proper respect to those two heavyweight tracks.

Definite Must Buy

Awesome album, DJ/Rupture just keeps putting out good stuff. Minesweeper Suite, Gold Teeth Thief, were amazing mixes. I was so-so on Special Gunpowder, but Uproot and now this, I can't stop listening. Highly recommended.

On the latter 2002 release, the Madrid, Spain-based DJ utilised around 60 records, three turntables and the opportunities of post-production tweaking to juxtapose music by Jamaican MCs and provocative female rap stars, post-rockers and iconic jazz singers,...
