COLDCUT Timber

This jam-packed, CD single-priced release contains seven mixes and five CD-ROM videos based on Coldcut’s stand-out chain saw and world music-sampling track from the Let Us Play CD. These very good mixes by producers like Journeyman and As One’s Kirk DeGiorgio boost the rhythms while maintaining a moody underpinning of sadness related to the environmental theme directed against the clear-cutting BC logging industry. Darren Knott’s “DK Recut” mix is particularly emotional, as his hard jazzy drums and funk bass line build up quite monumentally with strings and the original’s backing synths. The complete scenario is supplied by the CD-ROM tracks, which feature Hex’s amazing synchronised sound/video-sampling clip and two ‘video remixes’ by U2’s fave media terrorists Emergency Broadcast Network and the Swedish cut-up collective Lucky People Centre.
