Boston-born but Spain-based turntablist DJ Rupture (Jace Clayton)
specialized in mixes that pushed collaging techniques to a new
level of sophistication.
The live DJ sets Gold Teeth Thief (Violent Turd, 2002) and
Minesweeper Suite (Tigerbeat6, 2002) were cultural juxtapositions of
dub, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, house as well as ethnic folk music.
His other project, the live band Nettle, released Build A Fort Set That On Fire (Agriculture, 2002), a similar disco mix but highlighted by muscular rhythms and
Special Gunpowder (Tigerbeat6, 2004), his first release of original
material and his first album that does not employ a turntable,
is another cultural cauldron, drawing from several dimensions of space and time.
DJ Rupture applies the aesthetics of quotation, originally devised in the 1960s
by classical composer Luciano Berio, to the world of dance music in a manner
similar to Kid 606's
The Action Packed Mentallist Brings you the Fucking Jams.
An army of guests (running the gamut from singers to producers)
contributed to the making of the album.
Relocating to New York, DJ Rupture updated his collage art to the age of
dubstep and minimalist techno on the mix Uproot (Agriculture, 2008),
downshifting from the
frantic pace of his early albums to a more relaxed midtempo.
It was his most accessible mix yet, with an emphasix on dubstep.
Best treatments are perhaps those reserved to the two songs by
Clouds (the Finnish duo of Tommi Liikka and Samuli Tanner),
Elders and Too Much.
Frescoe's exotic Afghanistan and the avantgarde concerto of
Radios Et Annonceurs by Stalker (Brieuc Le Meur)
open new horizons.
Unlike Girl Talk, his art is neither hilarious nor festive, but often somber
Solar Life Raft (2009) was a collaboration between
DJ/Rupture and Matt Shadetek.
The moniker Nettle was resurrected for
the austere concept album
El Resplandor - The Shining In Dubai (Sub Rosa, 2011) that featured
several guest musicians.
