As DJ Spooky, Paul D Miller has helped elevate the status of the turntable from humble DJ tool to an instrument in its own right. His scratch skills may be dazzling, but he’s equally drawn to John Cage and Sun Ra as Kool Herc, Prince Paul and Grandmaster Flash. An almost academic approach to slipmat arts has seen him work with everyone from Scanner to Thurston Moore, but here his collaboration with producer Ryan Moore (aka Twilight Circus) results in the anchoring of the former’s darkly textured atmospherics by the latter’s deep, rootsy dub. It’s potent, postmodern magic.
