Said Deep - Duck in Idaho LPRaund Haus
Drenched in the love of vinyl record culture, DUCK IN IDAHO, harkens back to the days of sample-based masterpieces like DJ Shadow's 'Endtroducing' and The Avalanches 'Since I Left You.' Each song pulls pieces from the tapestry of musical memory to create sonic adventures and landscapes that slide between era and genre with barely a notice. Explosive drums, tickling synths, soothing horns and quirky soundbites abound.
It may be true that the era of the producer as a "master of records" may have faded but DUCK IN IDAHO reminds you at every turn that the party isn't over and dusty samples from the bottom of the bin still make as much sense as they ever did. It's just for the listener to decide.
