DJ SPOOKY VS. SCANNER, "THE QUICK AND THE DEAD"

E-mail Print PDF
"Hey, who put dub in my elitist drones?" The most dreadded release of the last few years by v/vm has finally materialized.
This offering is part 1 of Scanner's "Meld" series on his Sulphur/Sulfur records. It's been quite a disappointing last few releases from both of these acts but together, the end result is more than the sum of its parts. On the Spooky side, I'm thankful there's no more singers and bad rappers, on the Scanner side, there's some beat exploration almost completely missing on his recent works. While I'm not a collector of either of these folks work, I do hear some familiar riffs popping in and out of a few tracks here and there - which leads me to wonder if this is meant as derivative or original material. Of course, each artist used to argue that everything was derivative. The earlier parts of both members' careers were almost entirely based on derivative material with Spooky's cut up DJ'ing and Scanner's telephone conversation scanning. I do in fact like this CD and at the mid-line price it's worth it.
