Uproot, Rupture's first release since returning to Brooklyn after seven years in Spain, offers his most intimate work to date. Rupture is not a DJ to rest on previous highs, but who constantly looks for new ones. He proved that he can DJ fast & dense with his influential Gold Teeth Thief & Minesweeper Suite mixes - now it's time for the sensual slow dance of a (relatively) smooth turntablist-experience that deepens on repeat listens. Uproot downshifts into languorous long-blends and gorgeous moments of ambient warmth. This is surely his most 'listenable' mix to date, blended seamlessly with elements from UK dubstep and Brooklyn dancehall to Berlin abstraction, not to mention Brazil (Maga Bo), Finland (Clouds), Australia (Dead Leaf) and more. Taking the twin lessons of bass and space taught by 70s Jamaican dub visionaries, Uproot explores a wealth of new material - almost half of it previously unreleased - in a mix that is deep, contemplative, and contagious. Cosmopolitan bass never sounded so good.

he gives kickass recommendations for music as well - this one I bought on his recommendation, Analog Africa 3 or something, ranks up there with the Orchestra Baobab CDs I have.
the Pitchfork review pretty much nailed it as well - I can't think of too many DJs with his scope of knowledge either. there's one part that I'm not sure if he wanted to make it sound like it was going to side 2 or not, but his methods of sonic disruption seem to have evolved as well.
now that Diplo is using /Rupture's older tricks, it's reassuring to see that there's more up his sleeve. on the off chance that Jace himself is reading this, thank you for doing what you're doing.
This new mix album finds Rupture in fine form, seamlessly combining elements of Dubstep, Dancehall, Berlin Abstraction and Crunk. It builds upon the fast and dense music of previous works such as Gold Teeth and Minesweeper Suite, but with more contemplation and a reflection generated..
Uproot sees Rupture working with a host of DJs from all around the world. Which include Australian Dead Leaf, British Dubstep DJ Shackleton and Germans Ekkehard Ehlers to name but a few.
It is definitely his most gripping and listenable album to date and Rupture commissioned a string quartet for this latest outing. It has clear influences from seventies Jamaican dub and combines these elements, especially within the bass-lines, with warm ambiance and smooth Turntablism."
