habana subterranea

rarified schmarified A heedless mix of mambo basslines, electro/hip-hop beats, big-band horn arrangements and ambitous guitar soloing. Full ten-minute piece available on the Depth of Field CD.


drop it
A curious little staccatto melody with a vaguely asian quality forms the springboard for this restlessly dynamic latin-funk excursion. Incorporating at times arabic tonalities in the bass, "palmas" (gypsy hand claps) and a happy little drum and bass section. Conspicously lacking any soloing or improvisation.


drop it An edited version of the ten minute afro-cuban drum n bass manifesto featured on Billy Martin's illy B eats vol 2 remixes. Uses several different beats from Martin's breakbeat vinyl, illy B eats, sped up, slowed down, stuttered and otherwise pounded into submission until they are made to fit the 6/8 rhythm of the composition.
