DJ Spooky

Celestial Mechanix

Thirsty Ear Recordings

Released: 30th August 2004 | 11 track pop album
To commemorate the thirtieth entry into the Blue Series catalogue, DJ Spooky has cooked up a very special new album. With the entire Blue Series spread out before him, Spooky has expertly sorted, sifted, chopped and recombined this vast amount of music into a shining new work that teases out the lines between jazz and hip-hop, and then obliterates those lines. The result is 'Celestial Mechanix: The Blue Series MasterMix,' a no-holds-barred re-envisioning of some of the most visionary jazz of the 21st Century. From the subtly funky drumming of Hamid Drake to the unshakeable bass lines of William Parker, the intense lyricism of Matthew Shipp's piano to the hefty beats of El-P, nothing is off limits. Augmented by some of Spooky's favorite avant-garde MCs, including Antipop Consortium, Saul Williams and Carl Hancock Rux, 'Celestial Mechanix' represents a new level of sonic architecture. The CD version includes a special bonus disc featuring an 80-minute continuous mix of Blue Series tracks masterminded by DJ Spooky.'
