After countless compilation appearances, remixes, and DJ mix CDs, it's startling that DJ /Rupture has arrived at his debut album only now. Taken in by raggamuffins, punk technoids, indy hipsters, junglists, peers, and austere critics alike, he is the new face of urban music—the potent sound of genre—bending and overcrowded city life, a post-cultural broken mirror that mashes hiphop, techno, reggae, Afro-Cuban, spoken word, bohemian rhapsodies, folk music, chansons, breakbeats, avantgarde noise, and jazz through the strainer of a DJ's mentality.  Concentrated and exhilarating, Special Gunpowder is a declaration of musical independence, an intimate and complex work where pop sensibility leaves the comfort zone to explore new directions. In short, Rupture has traveled a world of sound to create one of the most soulful albums by an electronic producer in years. Rupture is as confident with studio gear as he is behind the turntables, and not one to shy away from multi-culturalism; the album contains lyrics in three languages (English, Spanish, and French). He sessione with Western and Arabic musicians in his Barcelona studio. There isn't a turntable in sight. (A little known fact: before he left NYC for Spain, Rupture played in a band with eight-time Grammy winner Norah Jones.) With guest appearances by Ghislain Poirier and Kit Clayton, vocals by Sister Nancy (the cut "Little More Oil" has been licensed to SoulJazz for a 12-inch), Max Turner (Puppetmastaz), Arnaud Michniak (of French cult experimental rock band Programme), ragga heavyweights Junior Cat, Wayne Lonesome, and Wicked Act, Eugene Robinson (of Bay Area avant-metal group Oxbow), and poet Elizabeth Alexander, Rupture brings together connections only he could have foreseen. Special Gunpowder is a major statement from one of the most forward-looking producers and DJs around.  also:  DJ Rupture Minesweeper Suite (Tigerbeat6 ®¢ MEOW045) CD 15.98 DJ Rupture / The Bug vs. Rootsman feat.
