33: “Durian” by The Cinematic Orchestra

Infinity x 6.The Cinematic Orchestra is but a handful of men, who use turntabulism, live instruments, and some special whatchamacallit to make music.  For some of their music they actually pre-record their own instruments to sample back in during live performances and recordings, which is a nice twist on how to use a DJ.  There are probably other historical examples of this, but I can’t think of any.  Lemme know.

I’ve always liked their debut album, Motion (1999), best.  Here is the opening track, “Durian.”

The song has two parts.  The first part could be the soundtrack of a seduction thriller.  The second part could be from a 70’s chase scene, funky and intense.  Crazy, I know.

But dig it.  Enjoy.
