Music I Liked And Didn't - 1/2/07 - 1/3/07
DJ Krush: Stepping Stones: The Self-Remixed Best - Soundscapes DLP (Red Ink) - This is one of two sets collecting remixes of Krush’s personal favorites released under the, “Stepping Stones: The Self-Remixed Best”, title. One, subtitled, “Lyricism”, features collaborations with various MCs. This one, the somewhat misleadingly subtitled, “Soundscapes”, features instrumentals. While these are instrumentals and they do incorporate a degree of sonic ambience, I’d hardly characterize these tracks as being, “soundscapes”, as most also feature elements of hip-hop (turntable scratching, old school beats, and dub-like bass lines) and jazz (keyboards and horn phrases), as well as (to a lesser extent) electronica and, even, pop. Highlights include the trip hoppin’, “Elapse”, the driving, “Trihedron”, “Duality” (featuring DJ Shadow), and, “Kemuri”. Sweet!
