strictly kev – raiding the 20th century (a history of the cutup)
strictly kev uses all artists who themselves sampled to create a huge mix as an hommage to bootleg culture.
“if bootlegs are dead, this is it’s eulogy.”
this is how kev describes sit:

“i tried to use examples of artists’ who had used samples or pieces of other peoples’ work or sounds that weren’t of a musical origin as a basis for the term ‘cut up’. Obviously i couldn’t fit everyone in and there are some glaring omissions from heavyweights like Stockhausen, Raymond Scott, Xenakis, Meat Beat Manifesto, Stock, Hausen & Walkman and a plethora of scratch DJs but it was for the Remix and i didn’t want to get too involved in certain areas.

The first section is a sort of mini superchunk in the style you would expect albeit with as many tracks in 10 minutes as you would maybe get in the usual 30 minute slot. After this i wanted to go back to the 40’s and the beginning of tape recorders and music concrete and proceed through the century up to 2001 – the year i always peg the ‘bootleg’ craze first emerging even though records like the EEC’s Whipped Cream mixes originally came out in ’94.

You could seriously write a thesis on this mix as so many parts cross reference, resample or ‘quote’ (as Jon Oswald would have it) each other, especially in the hip hop/megamix genre. For instance: Burroughs’ theorising on cutting into a phrase in the present makes the future leak out, here a small section of a Coldcut track using the same speech appears underneath and eventually synches up with his words.

Later on two seperate Steinski tracks both using the phrase “Heeeeeeere’s Jonny” segue into each other shortly after the phrase “Take it away John Cameron” from the Flying saucer record previously sampled by Steinski. (The ‘Time becomes a loop’ intro to the 2nd Orbital LP seems apt here)

On a lighter note we have Mike Read from Osymyso’s ‘Pat & Peg’ shouting “We’re looking for Roy” before jumping to a Freelance Hellraiser track and the trade off of Melle Mel’s “Bass” from ‘White Lines’ with Justins’ “Drums” from ‘Like I Love You’.

There’s over 130 tracks in there somewhere and another 60 or so spoken word samples, over 3 gigs of audio compressed into 39 minutes. The title ‘Raiding the 20th Century’ is an appropriation of a project Paul Morley & Trevor Horn were to instigate with the Art of Noise that would run for 7 years and encapsulate the different spheres of life from the last 100 years.”
