Album: We™ - As Is. (ASP 0971, 1997) Buy: http://asphodel.com/releases/view.php?Id=72 http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=1067074&style=music&fulldesc=T http://www.artistdirect.com/nad/window/media/page/0,,251071-1588899,00.html Release info: Wild, wild stuff, and like any true original, it's tough to find anyone else constructing music quite like it. We™ is a New York illbient collective featuring cyberpunks Lloop, DJ Olive, and Once 11 thrashing their way through a wasted digital landscape. "Magnesium Flares" imagines Stockhausen jamming with Public Enemy, while Herbie Hancock shoots off his "Rockit." "New Agent" could be the next phase in intelligent hip-hop with its gum-coated beats and wolfish electronic exteriors. In a manner befitting the styles and variations of someone like Cristian Vogel, another techno renegade who refuses to play by the rules, We deconstructs the motion music of the streets, creating machine rhythms that beat to cyber-organic hearts and brains, multi-reflective in their sonic images. Recorded at The Bloody Angle Compound, San Francisco, California in November & December 1996. Personnel: Eyvind Kang (violin); Raz Badawi Mesinai (percussion). Recording information: The Bloody Angle Compound, San Francisco, CA (11/1996-12/1996). We: Lloop, DJ Olive, Once 11.

Option (7-8/97, p.138) - "...they've adapted many of the latest and more prominent ideas in electronics and placed them in service to some pretty fascinating compositions....Never boring, AS IS works throughout as a cohesive, callenging listen."
