Various Artists Themselves: The No Music Remixed
- Words: Vivian Host
- Label: Anticon
This remix album of The No Music by indie-hoppers Themselves (the pairing of Doseone and Jel) sounds like your grandpa after a particularly large Sunday dinner. It's full of gurgles and creaks, drums that sound like heart palpitations and bass sounds that come farting out of the speakers in artful patterns. What's nice is that it lacks the droning boom-bap that even the most oddball hip-hop can't step away from-Jel's breaks and Doseone's elliptical raps are swept into the sampler and redone into lo-fi guitar sauce, ear-splitting gabber, and Renaissance Fair glitch by such names as the Notwist, Hood and Hrvatski. Tasty, and sometimes tasteless.
