BPitch inaugurates a new kind of mix CD and series. Boogy Bytes is a wholly unique listening experience, with tracks hidden within tracks, making for a free-associative-type ride. Even the cover, a snapshot of Kiki, frozen in time while shaking his head by Axl Jansen, is a new sort of animal. The techno-centric Boogy Bytes Vol. 1 has 16 indexes, but really it has 25 tracks, all digitally spliced and bifurcated, then layered on top and within one another like a fine Finnish pastry -- as when the elephants from Andre Kraml's "Safari" trample through Donal Tierney -- or when the vocals from Kiki's "The End of the World" climb over Guy Gerber's "Stoppage Time." Born in Helsinki, Kiki himself was a young hip-hop DJ, and can regularly be seen on 3 turntables, so this blending comes as second nature. His well-received Run With Me debut ("Glamorous" -- Simon Reynolds) was a precursor to this astonishing project: an expertly mixed, delicately balanced, ever-so-gradually ascending technologic delight. From start to, well, Finnish, the 16 or 25 tracks don't take you on a journey as much as they teleport you to heaven. Perhaps it's a kind of dance music soufflé, and Kiki is DJ Julia Child. This thing is literally next level(s).
