With the release of ‘Solar Life Raft’, DJ/Rupture and Matt Shadetek emerge from the shores of Brooklyn bearing gifts from the future. A rich blend of bass, beats, and space, rocked by a tropical wind, the album is an arresting testament to the fruit that grows at the margins, free from genre orthodoxy and pulsing with gentle mutant energy. The duo have a shared appreciation for streetwise dance music as well as more experimental sounds, and ‘Solar Life Raft’ features tracks blended on three decks into a complete and gripping narrative. Work on the album began when Rupture and Shadetek reached out to fellow Brooklynites Gang Gang Dance, Telepathe, and Jahdan Blakkamoore, offering their skills as remixers. To these remixes they added a half-dozen original productions and a fascinating selection of other tracks. One of Rupture’s several collaborations with poet Elizabeth Alexander, who spoke at Obama’s inauguration, finds a place here, as does entrancing multilingual poet Caroline Bergvall. Ghostly voices from classical wunderkind Nico Muhly flow into an exclusive beat from London’s leading female grime producer Mizz Beats, and avant-garde musique concrete legend Luc Ferrari rubs up against waves of US and European dubstep and bass from respected producers Shackleton, Various Production, Timeblind, Stagga, Cardopusher, and Pulshar. At times the musical flow is delicately smooth, at others the mix retains the first-take recordings to capture the energy and freshness of a live set. This is an album with lasting emotional resonance that will simultaneously put any soundsystem under rumbling pressure. “Feels like the equivalent of a much further travelled Dubstep Allstars mix” – Music Week.
