Drumure PROVES that 4/4 dumbed down stoner beats & braggadocio aren't where it's at, and that intelligence is sexy. Of all of the Filastine I've heard, this disc shows the percussion talents, and rhythmic style unique to his music, the most. Sampling is cut-up and rapid fire, the editing is sharp and has an edge, and overall, there's NOTHING like this record out there. Filastine can be grouped as much as anyone, but this makes that all seem arbitrary, This is a genre of it's own. Blow it up! Turn it up! Favorite track: Fitnah (feat. Jessika Skeletalia Kenney).

about

Filastine's 2006 debut album Burn It made inroads among music fans from the hiphop, world, electronic, and experimental scenes. The album peaked at #15 in France's national independent radio charts, and it received airplay from Mary Anne Hobbes & John Peel. The CD was snatched up and re-released by French label Jarring Effects, Japanese label Romz, and US anarcho-collective Crimethinc.

With his sophmore album, Dirty Bomb, Filastine's gritty transnational soundclash of urban rhythm returns. Freely splicing dubstep with balkan brass or hiphop with bollywood, Dirty Bomb parties in the mud puddle of our increasingly polluted world. Kick drums beat out rapid patterns for dances yet to be invented. Rich acoustic strings merge with programmed synths. Listen to "Fitnah" for proof that a song doesn't need to be in English nor in 4/4 to be a mesmerizing pop wonder. Each vocal here resulted from an on-site collaboration. Aboriginal Australian Wire MC and Japan's ECD (indy hiphop icons of their respective countries) rap over the contorted crunk of "Hungry Ghosts". Closing the album is teen gypsy La Perla, recorded in a squatted cave in
Granada.
