Nomadic laptop luddite Filastine crunches up found sound, street beats and live darbouka at his London album launch
Filastine released his debut LP Burn It on DJ /rupture's Soot Records imprint earlier this year. The album showcases his skill as percussionist and vision as a producer, combining a globe-trotting sensibility with deft programming. Arabic, Brazilian and other traditions meet crunching street beats to create an album that is widely travelled but still rooted in a carefully crafted individual aesthetic. This mix showcases Filastine's live show, which has a rowdy edge not so audible on his studio work. The same striking fragments of recorded sounds heard on the record are combined with dubstep, breakcore, grime, dancehall and loops and acapellas from other cutting edge club sounds. Add the spice of live percussion, played on a darbouka, midi drums, and a shopping trolley, and you have the recipe for something very tasty indeed.

The Gramaphone session was recorded at a Soot Records party in London which was held for the launch of Filastine's album in June 2006. DJ /rupture, Heatwave and Uberdog also played and the enthusiastic crowd can be heard at the beginning and the end.

No tracklisting.
