Coldcut presents 2 Hours of Sanity Pt. 1 - Love
This is Part 1 in a new Coldcut series of mixes.
The mind map lists the bases we want to cover, and some part of the links between our lifelong music experience and the electronic scene of today. It's partly about playing with the interface between DJ mixes of other peoples tunes, and producer/studio mixes creating original tunes. Using micro slicing and multi threading of material, with an ear for the magic moment of harmonic mix beauty and eye for mix aptness.
The project is also about celebrating the history of musical experimentation, featuring innovators ancient to the future. Using spoken word from Sun Ra's Arkestra as a leitmotif, it's a tribute from Coldcut to some of the artists we feel have both moved us and changed the game.
