Artist: _ And The Secret Formula
Catalog #: mtk037
Release Date: 2000/10/05
Far be it for us to be mysterious, but _ And The Secret Formula is damn spooky in his (its?) ability to glide up to our virtual front door, throw an mp3-containing brick thru it, and disappear back into the night again. Who _was_ that masked musician?
In this case, it was a masked musician who starts by cutting up rap lyrics into miniscule pieces, and then re-assembling them into geek-beatbox-heaven. Then dump a damn funky beat over the top, a little booty bass, some slick synth licks, and you end up with a weirdly unclassifiable piece of electronics. It’s like if Ol’ Dirty Bastard had gone to school with magnetic techno monkeys, innit?
