T-Cisco – “Destructive Edit, the ” – [Ubiquity Recordings]

According to his press release, T-Cisco (aka Theodore Feyder) is currently a bartender at San Francisco’s DNA Lounge. Judging from the quality of his debut CD, that gig won’t last for much longer! This is one of those albums for which the term “musical stew” was invented. Mr. T takes elements of hip hop, salsa, drum’n'bass, techno, soul, jazz, and maybe a few more styles I’ve overlooked, and blends them all together in a flurry of rapid-fire edits that, contrary to the album title, are VERY constructive indeed. Not content to merely orchestrate samples, T-Cisco also lays down his own live guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards on here as well, resulting in a full-bodied musical experience that resonates more with every listen. You can even hear the musical stewpot bubbling on a few tracks. No, wait…that’s a water pipe. Never mind!
