Latest Contender into the
multi-ethnic roots/dance floor fusion
arena is this former Edinburgh street busker,
weaving sundry varieties of bagpipe
- Highland, Lowland, Border, Arabic and electronic - through a succession of layered electro-acoustic soundscapes. Apart from one funked-up version
of a 400-year-old Donald MacCrimmon tune,
all the work is original, ranging from the opening Electric Lassieland, pitting squally electric guitars against a hectic pipe reel over a dub beat, through the sinuously sultry, Oriental sounding Belly Dancer Fae Fife to the moody, disco-tinged Highland Trance. Electric fiddle, electric cello, bouzouki, bass and percussion all feature in the mix,
along with multi-textured synth effects and drum loops and are sharply defined by both strong melodies and dextrous rhythm work.
