UnderTheCounter's second installment....
-Possibly the most original of the neo-ambient trip-hoppers is Luke Vibert, a protagonist of the British electronic music scene since the early 1990s
Like many of his contemporaries, Vibert has released under a wide number of aliases, including Amen Andrews, Spac Hand Luke, Plug, Kerrier District and The Ace of Clubs, as well as Wagon Christ on the legendary Ninja Tune label. Now he is back on Planet Mu, which seems to have become a semi permanent home for his eclectic blend of electronic music.
"This you’ve never heard ..now here this..the sounds you’re about to hear, can be devastating to your ear"
-Daedelus has refined a style that has no imitators. Contrasting IDM styled cut-ups with childlike arrangements from the 30s and 40s, he has created a sound that is entirely new. His productions find the hidden common denominator between modern electronics and sampled music from days gone by. Recording out of Santa Monica, Daedelus also incorporates hip-hop into his mix, with guest spots from Busdriver, MF Doom, TTC, TI$A, Mike Ladd, Absract Rude, Madlib, and High Priest (Anti-Pop Consortium). His live show, which utilizes a sample trigger device called the Monome and a custom-built software package, has amazed audiences across the US, Europe, Australia and Japan and secured his reputation as one of the most exciting producers in electronic music.
-Jon1st is a DJ/turntablist, producer and live performer from Surrey who runs the live electronics/hip hop/trip hop night DROP in Kingston and Leicester. His live sets take the form of mashups of all styles of electronic and beat based music comprised from a mixture of his own tracks with a few redits and remixes thrown in mixed up with live turntablism, mpc and synth improvisation. ..
