Spooky Debuts New Album In Fine Style: 50,000 Volts of Trojan Records to New
York Audiences

19th, 2006

World renowned turntablist DJ Spooky will premier his latest album,
In Fine Style: 50,000 Volts of Trojan Records, to New York
audiences at two separate events during the week of the album’s release. The
double-disc album features tracks by reggae legends Lee Perry, Sly and Robbie,
Peter Tosh, and many others hand selected by DJ Spooky from the vaults of
Trojan Records.

“Rhythm Science: In Fine Style! DJ Spooky Presents Trojan Records Classic
Old-School Reggae – The Art of the Remix” takes place on the album’s release
date of June 27th at SOHO’s Apple Store. A free event, The Art of the
Remix will feature DJ Spooky demonstrating dub track production
techniques that, according to DJ Spooky, influenced many producers like
Brian Eno, David Byrne, Rick Rubin, and other artists like the Beastie Boys,
Public Enemy, Cypress Hill, Rage Against The Machine, Radiohead, and Bjork.”

“The idea of taking a track apart and rebuilding it with special effects came
out of Jamaica,” DJ Spooky commented. “I’ll show how to make a track from
scratch, and how remixes can be made from old tracks, drum solos, and dub bass
lines. Hiphop, electronica, house music, techno… you name it, dub influenced
them all. I’ll show how different styles of music can be sampled, cut up, and
made into everything from soundtrack music to dance club floor filler.”

The Art of the Remix begins at 6:30 PM at The Apple Store in SOHO, New
York (103 Prince Street, New York, New York).

On Friday, June 30th DJ Spooky will join legendary DJ Don Letts
for the Afro-Punk Weekend Open Night Party, presented by Afro-Punk, BAM,
and Trojan Records at Brooklyn’s Southpaw venue (125 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, New
York) as part of BAMcinematek’s 2nd annual Afro-Punk Weekend. In a battle of the
new-school versus the old-school, DJ Spooky and Donn Letts, the DJ
credited with single-handedly turning an entire generation of punks onto reggae,
will battle it out on the decks. Live performances by The Eternals (Chicago),
Shawn Hewitt (Toronto), and Nouveriche (Philadelphia) will round out the
