Do Not Disturb
A hotel room and some excess time.
Sometimes good things come out of boredom, sometimes… surprising things. This one started out as a spur of the moment and slightly tongue in cheek idea and ended up as finished set of music due to excess time at hand. The live set is built around misuse of 90s hip hop and pop music vocals in a hotel room somewhere in Sweden. It combines bits and pieces of unreleased Recue material and full on improvisation with awkward moments of realizing what the vocal track being tinkered with actually is. So it’s an odd mutation of a mixtape, mashup and bootleg remixes. The result is a live mix filled with bass heavy sluggish beats spiced up with fast paced syncopated percussions recorded from random stuff found around the hotel room and mangled through digital production.
The release consists of two parts, the first being a performance video including the first half of the set. The second part is the complete 27:30 minutes of freely downloadable audio. So why play a set alone in a hotel room, you might ask. The reason is that I was recently ’stuck’ for some time in an airport hotel due to other obligations besides music. As you might know, airport hotels are not the world’s most exciting places, so instead of watching pay-TV and drinking beer, this is how I spent my spare hours.
