The follow up to 2003ís dub tribunL, blu tribunL finds idiosyncratically excellent producers Akufen, Freeform and Rip Off Artist modernizing one of the most tradition-entrenched genresñthe blues. Each artist deconstructs venerable songs into Cubist mutations that will horrify purists (in the unlikely event they ever hear this disc). blu tribunLís frissons spring from the novel incongruity of Mississippi Delta mud mingling with clicks íní cuts jaggedness and getting atomized by antiseptic DSP. Ironically, Akufen, Freeform and Rip Off Artistís irreverence toward the blues actually revitalizes electronic music, and unexpectedly reveals the blues as a rich springboard for musical innovation.
