Dj Rob Swift - Rabia - 2nd Movement from The Architect


Master turntablist Rob Swift has strived to expand the definition of Hip Hop since his first release in the mid-90’s. In an age where creating an iTunes play list is the sole prerequisite for being called a DJ, Swift’s boundary-pushing new release, The Architect, is a refreshing reminder that the 1’s and 2’s are an instrument in themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Ici d'Ailleurs is proud to launch its OuMuPo collection, where DJs and electronic music composers are asked to remix the label catalog. But there’s a twist – they have to comply with constraints issued in the OuMuPo charter. OuMuPo is the French nickname for "Ouvroir De Musiques Potentielles," or "Workshop For Potential Musics." It is one of the many artistic movements derived from surrealist Raymond Queneau and François le Lionnais' 1960 OuLiPo (Workshop For Potential Literatures). This principle has inspired a lot of creators…and that’s how OuBaPo was born (Workshop For Potential Comics), with such illustrators as Jean-Christophe Menu, Etienne Lecroart, Jochen Gerner and many more. Ici d'Ailleurs is fond of OuBaPo, and so they asked one of the movement leaders, Jean-Christophe Menu, to join the project. The result is a totally new 16-page comic book that comes along with each OuMuPo album, each drawn by a different cartoonist.

Etienne Lecroart, a French surreal cartoonist whose speciality is palindromes and multi-readable comics (horizontally, vertically and diagonally) faces Rob Swift, incredible U.S. turntablism master and X-Ecutioners member. Reminiscent of the great jazz musicians of yesteryears, Rob Swift has influenced the art form known as turntablism as just as John Coltrane impacted the world of jazz. Turntablism, once only appreciated by an eclectic fan base that would huddle in cramped places such as San Francisco’s Beat Lounge, has come to the forefront in recent years and is now revered as the new music form sweeping the world, eloquently defined by Rolling Stone as "elaborate scratching and beat juggling techniques [that] create new music by dismantling the old."

4.0 out of 5 stars Give this a listen! December 10, 2004

Format:Audio CD
It's not hip-hop. It's not strictly a turntablist album. It's just plain good. This album is growing on me with each listen and demonstrates what an innovator Rob Swift is and will be for years to come. Words won't do this album justice. Just give it a chance and I think you will like what you hear!
