Jimi Handtrickz - Boss Matsumotos Trip Through The Underground (12" Vinyl)
You can find 12 songs on the album of different styles and forms. It contains dark, jazzy scratch compositions as well as some more danceable songs. The one element tying them all together is the way they were produced.
Every single drum, bass or guitar sample was cut up using just a mixer and a turntable. So this album takes the rare title “100% SCRATCHED”.
It was, however, important to Jimi that his music appealed to people outside of the djing or turntablism scene. The result is an extraordinary project which will excite turntablists and listeners of instrumental hip-hop alike.
But the music is not the only special feature of this project. The cover of the record shows a 29-picture comicstrip with a thrilling story of Jimi escaping from the dreaded Tokyo mobster Matsumoto.
The comic is associated to the samples used in the songs, so you can read the comic while listening to its “soundtrack”. The Drawings were done by Jimi himself during a one-month drawing odyssey.
