Break It Down

Another grab bag Friday evening. 

I'm digging the reissue of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan's 'El Fascinante Mundo De La Musica Electronica (Fascinating World Of Electronic Music)' released on Sonitron. The liner notes, which look comprehensive, are in Spanish, but I do know these gentlemen were early electronic experimenters who draw on modern classical and jazz to create a mix of fractured, whimsical and sometimes psychedelic  sounds..

Here's a clip from "Sonic Re-entry," another one of the duo's cosmic explorations:

 

And here they are in 1959, bringing the tape manipulation skills. 


So much crypto Aphex, so little time. I dig the sound of this simple breakbeat getting pulled into a vortex.


Finally, 'Ferg Forever' is still dominating my mixtape rotation.
