(another) Stunt is the second part of a trilogy started in 2008 with the ‘Stunt’ EP on Schoolmap: the series is based on the use of one turntable and a large selection of vinyl records as sources for raw material, and pulses/rhythm as main organisational principle. The focus on the physical gesture of playing the records – fully recognisable after the editing and the assemblage – is probably more related to the kind of “turntablism” familiar to hip-hop musicians, than to other plunderphonic-related sampling technique.
Aesthetically, the Stunt project has been welcomed as a departure from the style of music Giuseppe Ielasi has been previously identified with: the strong emphasis of rhythmic pulses, the balance between repetition and variation, and the overall organization of the raw material could bring to mind a personal interpretation of skeletal deep house as well as asymmetrical cold funk. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.
