Boogy Bytes 1
BPitch inaugurates a new kind of mix CD and series. Boogy Bytes is a wholIy unique listening experience, with tracks hidden within tracks, making for a free associative type ride. Even the cover, a snapshot of Kiki frozen in time while shaking his head by Axl Jansen, is a new sort of animal. The techno-centric Boogy Bytes Vol. 01 has 16 indexes, but really it has 25 tracks, all digitally spliced and bifurcated, then layered on top and within one another like a fine Finnish pastry, as when the elephants from Andre Kraml's Safari trample through Donal Tierney or when the vocals from Kiki's The End of the World climb over Guy Gerber's Stoppage Time, Born in Helsinki, Kiki himself was a young hip-hop DJ, and can regularly be seen on 3 turntables, so this blending comes as second nature. His well received Run with Me debut I Glamorous (Simo Reynolds) was a precursor to this astonishing project, an expertly mixed delicately balanced, ever-so-gradually ascending technologic delight. From start to, well, Finnish, the 16 or 25 tracks don't take you on a journey as much as they teleport you to heaven. Perhaps it's a kind of dance music souffle, and Kiki is DJ Julia Child. This thing is literally next level(s). BPITCH CONTROL.2006.
