It all started “at the corner” in 1999 with some secret music software & some virgin beats. Shortly Inverse Cinematics (IC) duo (Danilo Plessow (aka MCDE, DITD, Hipster Wonkaz, Analogue Haze, etc…) & Joachim Tobias(J°)) tracks were appearing on different compilations and remixes were showing up here & there... Remember the two noisy releases: “Slow Swing EP” on Pulver Records, that was licensed to one of the Fabric CD series & their cheeky breaks anthem “Shoot The Pianist” on Fluid Ounce, which quickly found it’s way onto the playlists of all the top disc-jockeys worldwide? And what about the latest “Detroit Jazzin’”?
On joining FACES records the boys with the frequencies return with this fine record called “Vogelhaufen EP” & keep on refining bass to a murderous artform. Taking influences from jazz, hip hop, funk, house & mysterious songs of some weirdo-birds these tracks mix up contemporary styles to create deep, downtempo & dancefloor soul. You can here recognize “Pet Legs original” from the reasonably encomiastic “Shoot the Pianist” LP. The Tape remix is following a similar line of unassuming groovy hip hop, with overwhelming aura of futuro jazz in fact providing a perfect smell of the underground tubes & metro stops. Ye Solŕr trio works on “Burnout” adding smooth & moody jazz flavour live interpretations and makes sure the sound is fresh and yet will last over time. Another one in the vein of “what on earth they were thinkin’ ” moments from IC is “7by7” which brings us into a solid twisted jazz track. “MLK” & “Dem” flip-flopping between dark samples and weirdcore soundbites with an ever-constant barrage of breaks and beats underneath get you from a mid morning wake straight ahead to the dancefloor.
Inverse Cinematics have quietly built up a reputation for excellent brokenbeats and more. They are getting into deep water, in some cases to the point where there's no turning back. How are you feeling about this?
