A neighborhood harvest of sounds and grooves from around the Brooklyn barbecue. A mythic "Sunrise on a rooftop in Brooklyn."
The music speaks for itself, strange yet delicious, like the first time you put bacon on your veggie burger, but perhaps with mango chutney, wasabi and cole slaw.
Barbecue Beets originally came out in 2002 on the Agriculture as a CD only mix compiled by DJ Olive. Here we present some of the full tracks that have been previously unavailable on vinyl. This is the first of two BBQ Beets EP's to be released on the Agriculture this summer. featuring a long blissed out track from Lloop of WE, spaced-out dub-hop from Mentol Nomad of Wordsound, nyc up-and-comer Sporangia remixed by DJ Olive, a nice ambient interlude from Trey Max, and something layed back and funky from Koosil-ja.
These tracks were intended to play at 33 RPM, but many of the dubbed out rhythms sound amazing at 45 too.
"In a time when hip-hop production techniques are becoming as cliche as the alternately thugged-out or bugged-out individuals who pass as artists, Barbecue Beets hits a potent note that is equal parts found-sound noise collage, chunky sampled beats, and downtempo funk."
