Product Description

Everyone has a soul... Just as everyone has an individual vision... Dreams... We close our eyes, and wonder... What is reality? Why are we here? What is our purpose? On our journey through life, we associate ourselves though emotional states of mind... We want to feel... And we want to be accepted... For who we are, and for what we believe in... Trying our best immortalize our souls... Wanting to leave this world knowing that we didn t just slip through the cracks of society... But that we were noticed, and appreciated... Leaving behind something beautiful... Often times, one must sacrifice certain humanities in order to achieve such bittersweet immortality... Sometimes, even the rose goes unnoticed... Through the thick tangles of thorned vines and underbrush... Waiting to be discovered... Patiently... In all of its glory... Wanting to share its beauty with those who seek just one glimpse... de


"Dirty Elegance brings it on strong with the exquiste and un-relenting ethno trip-hop sounds from their solid release "Finding Beauty in the Wretched". This solid release blends raw and edgy trip-hop beats with melodious keyboard stylings to deliver up music which will move you physically and emotionally." Finding Beauty In the Wretched" brings together a full measure of exquisite trip-hop sprinkled with ethnic flavor and supported by some extra fat beats. This album is packed (20 tracks strong) with music that blends raw and edgy trip-hop beats with melodious keyboard stylings to deliver up music which will move you physically and emotionally. Although some of the tracks are certainly dark and gritty in texture there is certainly beauty to be found. After a short intro the album starts off strong with the fresh un-relenting tracks "Foreign Objects", "Solicitude" and "Wirrok". These three tracks alone are worth the price of of the CD and clearly represents originality and depth of Dirty Elegance. There are some tracks that fall into the "just ok" category but just before things become too familiar, Dirty Elegance mixes it up with a nice twist, such as with the tracks "Tailor Made" and "Engloutir". If you are into trip-hop or instrumental hip-hop that falls outside the commerical box you need to check this album out! --Subsonic Temple

I have a very fresh album; Dirty Elegance, 'Finding Beauty In The Wretched'. This is trip-hop with impurities of IDM, or IDM with impurities of trip-hop (for the more highly trained ear). The title of the album already offers us some thoughts", says music gourmands and philosophers. Very good music! I proclaimed (three years ago) that IDM would gain momentum and join the different styles of music, taking a growing number of fans along with it. And for the first time, after having that thought, it now proves to be the case (needless to mention Thom Yorke s solo album), which utilized straight saturated IDM ... Dirty Elegance combines such interesting areas of trip-hop, IDM, and instrumental, complementing the beauty and aesthetics of this album . A mysterious, and sometimes monotonic tone is encountered when listening, with beautiful vocals periodically interwoven amongst the superbly distorted sounds and atmospheres. This album was just placed on my list of best albums of 2007. Generally speaking, this year is very encouraging with a surge in the trends of multiple genres. I'm certainly ready, but do not know what to expect ... If it continues at this same rate, 2007 will be the year of musical creatures! I hope you share my view and appreciate the depth and creativity of Dirty Elegance, as music without words is not the same as music without meaning! --HYPERmedia

Debut album from New York based upstart, Dirty Elegance, is a must-hear. A new Paradigm in music composition that defies all genres and delivers consistently. Reviewers throw around the word seminal like it ain t no thing, but for once it s use is justified. This album is nothing less. --Starklove
