With this compilation we celebrate Reclooseâ€™s early works from the late 90â€™s, early 00â€™s.Â This material is often regarded as his best. The compilation includes his best music from that period, both released and unreleased.Â In fact, itâ€™s an even score with seven released tracks and seven unreleased tracks.
The CD starts with tracks from his first two releases, both for Planet E, from 1998 and 1999: So This Is The Dining Room and Spelunking. It is especially Spelunking that solidified his name and earned him a worldwide fan base.Â Â This CD once again showcases Reclooseâ€™s talent for merging electronic music with just about any preceding form of music: jazz (First Off, originally released under Dapp on Omoa Music), reggae/dub (Insomnia In Dub) or soul (Cant Take It).
A lot of people don't know this, but I actually spent the last five years of my life studying 19th century philosophy in East Norway. Over that time I worked with the Norwegian Rick Rubbin (Chris Macro) on an EP based around the teachings of Friedrich Nietzsche and Max Roach.
The EP was recorded live on two track at Carnegie Hall and mastered in Albany. It features guest appearances from Scratch 22, Rachel Fraser, Ester Stevens, Mutsa Murare and Tourettes and is available for free download here.
