Bells, ripples, squawking birds and whining violins unite


XLR8R just put up a really cool video where they followed around Seattle producers Dave Pezzner (a.k.a. Pezzner) and Jeff McIlwain (a.k.a. Lusine) to record a track using mainly field recordings. They take a light-rail train to the Seattle waterfront and record what they find — including the bells of the train, a weird Chinese cello-like string instrument, squawking birds,  water lapping against the pier, etc. They then retire to the home studio and construct the track. When all is said and done, you can listen to or download the track here. Nice stuff XLR8R.

Btw, while you’re there download the new mixtape by Kode9. One of the forefathers of dubstep, Kode9 uses this mix to highlight his influence (and the progenitor of dubstep), that wonderfully skippy bassy loveliness of 2-step. A great snapshot of London 2-step circa 1999-2002, you really really do want this mix even if you don’t know it yet…
