Various Artists DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid: Rhythm Science
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Sub Rosa
Sub Rosa commissioned a DJ who knows the meaning of "de-territorialization" and "pan-humanism" to remix tracks from its catalog of the sort of noisicians who often bandy such terms about. Rhythm Science is Spooky's usual "illbient" trip through the incense-choked back alleys and warehouses of Babylon, but this time it stars greats like Bill Laswell, Scanner and Claude Debussy. Sub Rosa's best asset is its spoken-word collection of famed literary outlaws, but Spooky mostly uses them as fodder on top of breaks; the hopeful, but fudged, pairing of Oval with James Joyce is unforgivable. Rhythm is an admirable concept, but set to leave listeners feeling shortchanged.
