DJ Spooky

The Secret Song

Thirsty Ear Recordings

Released: 2nd November 2009 | 20 track leftfield/idm album
DJ Spooky's new project The Secret Song isn't really an album: it's a manifesto about the place of history in our modern collaged, scrambled, sampla-delic to the core, mega info overloaded digital culture. With references stretching from Thorstein Veblens Theory of the Leisure Class and John Maynard Keynes classic in the ?eld of economics The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money over to hip hop's relationship to psychoanalysis and a la Edward Bernay's concept of the manufacture of consent - DJ Spooky's new album is a groundbreaking meditation on hip hop and electronic musics relationship to philosophy, economics, and the science of sound in a world where the steady drumbeat of the ?nancial meltdown has made music the last refuge of young people with less and less time and money. DJ Spooky's peer group of artists like DJ Krush, DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, RJD2, DJ Logic, Amon Tobin, and Coldcut have all played with the idea of concept albums. With The Secret Song DJ Spooky looks to bands like Nine Inch Nails, and Radiohead for inspiration. As DJ Spooky likes to say people - it's ALL about economics. Dig?
