M.I.A.’s Sub Static (Cologne) + new Dino Felipes vs Funk Mobb

December 9, 2004 at 1:56 pm 1 comment

First and foremost M.I.A. from Cologne (aka Michaela Grobelny), no not
the Sri Lankan via U.K. grime beauty, was first brought to my attention
by a Philip Sherbourne article. Then some friends said their trying to
bring her to the states and I decided to check her out. M.I.A. She’s
part of that entire better than tech-house movement that folks like
Luciano seem to be hep on (his ep for Bruchstuecke is one of the
weirdest easy listening tears for fears tunes I’ve heard in awhile).
Describing what exactly M.I.A. does is kinda hard to put down in the
usual imagine said band playing with said producer with such and such a
vocalist, basically it’s all creative click and paste histories of
techno, cleaning up grimy eighties electronica, giving it all a techy
sheen, then sending it to the next stage of production where it becomes
pop songs . Denies the usual eighties fetish for dirt fucking in the
office to glammy new wave.

Check out Release #36

Dino Felipe played at my old night twice and dropped noisy fucking
bleeps the first time and the second time played some of his more
disturbing pop music. Dino might be the guy to make Schematic’s usual
avant-mockery into something pleasant enough to dance to, and his two
latest projects (the album I’m You and new group Finesse and Runway) do
seem to be destined to lift the freak flag all over sequencers and
windows media players. Here’s hoping Finesse and Runway’s minimal
promotion in the states drives it onto tables at indie dance nights all


I’m You

This is from Cociane

Funk Mobb mp3 from their 1996 e.p. for Jive. Never heard of these guys
before, but Cocaine Blunts consistently puts up some good shit.
Produced by 40, ( I think the producers name is 40 Water). Proto
dirty-south type of shit. Their out of print Cd is fetching good prices
on amazon.
