Biography

Most people come into music, do the same thing for a few years, slowly sink back into obscurity and spend the rest of their life collecting publishing royalties and re-forming for tribute tours. Their biographies can afford to be quite short – most of us aren’t that interested in golf or angling. The problem with Coldcut is that, despite their veteran status, they act like two ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Comprised of ex-art teacher Jonathan More and computer programmer Matt Black, Coldcut have been active in the UK electronica scene since the heyday of Acid House in the mid-1980s: releasing the first UK "sampling" disc ("Hey Kids"), launching the careers of Yazz and Lisa Stansfield, and establishing a formidable reputation as producers and remixers. Their fourth album--and the first on their own Ninja Tune label--Let Us Play is at once as dizzyingly eclectic yet as consistent in tone as one would expect from these innovators. Who else would (or, for that matter, could) bring together guests as diverse as ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, legendary funk drummer Bernard Purdie and poet Salena Saliva? Hardly surprising: in applying the cut-and-paste aesthetics of multimedia, Coldcut delight in collisions of form and meaning: "Timber," for example, is an audio-visual collage that manages to be both a protest song (campaigning for an end to industrial logging, and using footage supplied by Greenpeace) and a hypnotic dance track. Electronic music at its most intelligent. --Andrew McGuire

5.0 out of 5 stars A London Labyrinth favourite 25 Mar 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is breathtaking at times. I like albums that immediately sound fresh and original but which also slowly reveal further layers.This has a wealth of ideas, subtle detail and inspired combinations of textures. Challenging but wholly listenable and thoroughly absorbing. Something of an overlooked masterpiece. This is listed on the London Labyrinth web site which features the best links for those who like electronic/sampling maestros such as these.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future of dance music? 16 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The more you listen to this album, the more astonishing it becomes. Trying hard to shape the future of dance music out of the current trend of comercialised one trick tracks, they have created a CD that is beyond innovative. With their 'Natural Rythmn' and other Vjammed tracks they create stunning audio visual tracks. You may find it hard to beleive that this ablum has 13 tracks- 73 mins, 7 videos (three more that are not audio) and loads of stuff for your computer to keep YOU creating the music and loads of weird stuff. The most complete package of an album ever created. Buy it and give it a chance. It will grow on you and in the future you'll be able to say to your mates 'I told you so, I've been listening to this 'new' dance music for years thanx to Coldcut'

5.0 out of 5 stars electronic at its best 11 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
An artistic masterpiece! Poltically, socially, ecologically and technologically charged. Not for those looking for another elctro or trip-hop album, it is a reflection on the 90's. Incorporating electro, trip-hop, dance and ambience tracks each technically superior in terms of musical structure in their particular genres. Anyone who prides themself on their taste in music should be proud to add this to their collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry to disappoint you but.... 12 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...well, sorry, but I thought this was rubbish. I guess it depends on what you're expecting - in my case that was trip-hop and, being a fan of Herbaliser on the same record label, I thought I'd give these guys a try. Admittedly I havn't listened to it many times but when I do I simply can't penetrate an overdone elctronic/digital exterior - if you like "electronica", you may like this, if like me you prefer more old skool vibes, stand well clear... There is a lot of variety on the album and at times many tracks sound promising but seem to be invariably let down by abstract computerised sounds which, I'm afraid, simply don't do it for me.
