DJ Sprinkles: Bassline.89 | 12" Vinyl EP | Released 2001 | C.009
Beauty in contradiction (or is it hypocrisy?)
Comatonse Recordings is to House Music
as Soviet watch's "hammer & cythe" arms are to zodiac hour dial
Fagjazz is to global transcendental-oriented dancefloors
as traditional mystical Chinese luck charm is to early Mao
(or like Deep House is to Experimental music)
A. socio-materialist agendas
B. 'spiritually' daden historical references
3. ultimately ambivalent marketplace
(the 3 elements of all Comatonse Recordings releases)
socializing materials ← social material → socio-material
jazz ← "classy" ← class consciousness → struggle → underground → danger of metaphysics
jazz ← "classy" ← class → struggle → underground
underground ← struggle → consciousness → danger of metaphysics
"dismantle the (jack)master's house with his own tools"
(jazz = corporate device + leftist liberationist mythology)
end result: friendly, familiar but not same old mix
feeling - OK!
deep thought - OKAY!
ultimately - commodity (relationship to capitalism?)
C.009 - Limited to 100 copies outside of Japan
