OUT THERE
:: The Heliocentrics ::
07 January 2008 / No Label Required / Now-Again Records / 24 Trk CD
By JA

Drummers often get a bum deal in any rock band scenario, but Malcolm Catto had even more to prove as the background percussionist for DJ Shadow – he’s been sampled repeatedly but it must be harder to stand out as an individual ? Maybe not, as “Out There” seeks to prove. Here Catto partners a collective of like minded pioneers of live dub. The album's a jazzy freefall of improvisation and slow, tightly knotted drum beats. Fittingly it’s the kind of stuff that’s fuelled Manchester’s underground dance scene for the last decade, which should provide an acceptable barometer of UK tastes for this tasty and inventive fusion of cut and paste organic cyber-funk.
