Released in 2012 on 30 hand dubbed cassette tapes, 'ObliqueKitchn' sautees a medley of mid-tempo rhythms in a frying pan of aromatic loops and stewed softsynths. The cover collage depicts immenent transcedance amidst the faces of absurdity.

Way Back When [LP]

New Vinyl: $30.98 Buy

"For me, sampling is like a collaboration," says DJ Yuta Yamaoka, better known to global beatheads as Pigeondust. Residing in Chiba, Japan, Pigeondust spends his days either vinyl-digging or sourcing samples - that is, creating sonic collaborations - from his discoveries. Pigeondust is also a member of the EN TOKYO crew, representing a new generation of Japanese beat-makers who draw from a large variety of genres. In 2015, Pigeondust joined Cold Busted with his fantastic album Moon, Wisdom & Slackness. He now follows up with an ambitious double album titled Way Back When. Way Back When explores a galaxy of hip hop styles throughout it's whopping 36 cuts. The vibe is gritty and street-smart, samples from jazz, funk, world music, and other pathways poured into one groovable stew. "Chienowa" sets the tone with it's tough beat, funk bass pops, and fly-by musical riffs. "Spiral Beat" is also notable for it's arpeggiated jazz loop that shifts into gentle '70s piano soul. And the collaborations aren't exclusive with samples - Turkish producer Ozoyo joins Pigeondust for the drum-twisting nature walk of "Magicnight," and Swiss producer DRWN. Appears on cut-up jazz jam "Intense." There's much to explore here. The album is available from Cold Busted on double vinyl, it's packaging a loving homage to Yo! MTV Raps and it's sought-after trading cards. Each album comes with a Pigeondust trading card complete with artist photo and vital stats. Represent.

A-side "Man Called Blunder" - Robert Pollard says "the recording is perfectly executed, the best performance of a GBV song, ever...". Non-LP b-side is a sparkling remake of "She Wants To Know" from GBV's 1986 debut Forever Since Breakfast.
