Witnesses to live appearances by the brothers Nicolas and Laurent Baudoux of Scratch Pet Land have found themselves spellbound. These two Belgian lunatics express a no-holds-barred attitude and jump to and from laptop music, sportive scratching and high-pitched clatter- grooves.  Nicolas Baudoux (aka DJ Elephant Power) is the "Scratch" in Scratch Pet Land; an extremely nimble turntablist, he's also the antithesis of what one would normally call a perfectionist-- a turntablism void of battle-attitudes or the vanities of the DJ. No Si, Ni So has a lot in common with the music o Scratch Pet Land. But one could also mistake it for the lost Zappa-album Jazz From The Dangerous Kitchen. The music is never phat or tight, but simply meanders on (and on). Musical themes are introduced and then left by the wayside, only to reappear unexpectedly. The percussion, which at times seems to have more in common with a domestic accident than with beats, is cushioned by a surprisingly jazzy Rhodes piano and obliquely filtered Moog sequences. This music is laid back, artful, never silly but, in spite of its intelligent trickiness, immune to artificial seriousness, as well as krautrock-y and funky in the "played-mainly-on-kitchenware—and-samplers" sense. The tracks start casually, almost nonchalantly, with structures suggesting origins in live sessions, but then diverge and follow new roads. DJ Elephant Power creates music that does not want to fool. Cheerful and, in spite of all contrary rhythmic motions, very relaxed, neither demanding nor compelling, it just is. DJ Elephant Power offers a timeless and convincing DJ attitude which will set new standards for future DJ contests!  also:  Scratch Pet Land Solo soli iiiii (Sonig SONIG14) CD 10.98 / LP 10.98
