Jimmy Barka Experience

Stolen Boats

RX:TX

Released: 6th May 2016 | 7 track turntablist-group ep

Jimmy Barka Experience is a rhythmic tour de force, a trio of two DJs and a drummer. After the release of their Old News mixtape and an extensive amount of gigs, the group made a record with a shift from their previous endeavours.

The basic principle remains the same: a collage full of unpredictable turns, and a colourful mix of styles from funk, breaks, afro and hiphop to Turkish psych and Balksploitation. The music is still a 100% result of live tinkering, playing over and over and over again. And the tracks come about by playing, performing; they evolve, change, they're kneaded and polished.

But this time the arrangements are shorter, with intros, climaxes and outros, even with a chorus here and there. They seem closer to the common song structure, something that a proper band, and not a bunch of sample thieves, would produce.
