DJ Faust (originally from Washington) is
a (white) master of turntable improvisation.
Man Or Myth (Bomb, 1998), the first all-scratching album,
originally recorded when he moved to Atlanta in 1996,
blends breakbeats, scratches, vocal samples, electronica and psychedelia
into a dense, intricate continuum that recalls the experiments of musique
concrete played at double speed.
With this work, DJ Faust established himself as the
Mike Oldfield of hip hop.
Equally futuristic and eclectic is the EP Fathomless (Bomb, 1998), shared
with two colleagues.
DJ Faust's virtuoso show on the four suites
(Fire, Wind, Water, Earth) of
Inward Journeys (Bomb, 1999)
is similar to the albums of solo guitars of so many
Jimi Hendrix imitators, once you replace the guitar with the turntable;
or even to the albums of electronic music of the German cosmic couriers,
once you replace the keyboards with the turntable.
