Product Details
Count up the records you've heard recently that don't sound like anything else. The ones that don't artfully reference previous classics or jump onto a revivalist trend. Records which seem to come out of no particular space or time and do so with such force that you have to admit this really is something different. Got any fingers up yet? No? Then drop Art Brut Fe De Yoot into the CD player...
In 2004, Infinite Livez was touring Europe promoting 'Bush Meat' (BDA68), his debut album for Big Dada. The rapper best known for surreal, weird-out, sex rhymes like "White Wee Wee" was approached at a show in Switzerland by an intense man named Pierre who wanted to know if he would like to record a track with his project Stade.
Stade is an improvised electronic music duo formed by Pierre Audetat (samplers/keyboards) and Christophe Calpini (samplers/drum pads) who have played and recorded with singers like Wayne Paul and Nya, avant-garde musicians like Elliott Sharp, Gregoire Maret and Joy Frempong and electro-jazz players like Erik Truffaz and Nils Petter Molvaer.
Stade and Infinite laid down a few noteworthy tracks, but it was only when they invited him back to Switzerland to record a live session that the three musicians began to see the possibilities of what they were doing. Working live, Stade improvised with presets of samples triggered by keyboards and drum pads. Infinite added spontanteous songs, raps and a cacophony of sound, running his microphone through a barrage of effects pedals. So intrigued were the trio, they embarked on a series of marathon recording sessions.
"Art Brut Fe De Yoot" is comprised of highlights from these sessions. There are no over-dubs, no second takes, just three musicians pushing the limits of hip hop, jazz and electronic music while not sounding much like any of them. Infinite Livez and Stade have made an album which is often poised, sometimes beautiful, occasionally filthy, regularly funny but always weird. That's "weird" meaning new, strange to the ear and utterly compelling. It's 'Art Brut Fe De Yoot'.
