2LP version. This is the debut full-length release by France's Krazy Baldhead. The B-Suite is comprised of four movements and 49 minutes of music. With vocal appearances by Tes, Outlines, Big O & Mlle Yulia, and Beat Assaillant, more than ever, Krazy Baldhead proves that Ed Banger isn't only a label embodying a certain sound, but well and truly the label of an era. Is this an electro album? A hip-hop album? It's up to you to decide for yourself. His influences range from the Chemical Brothers to Bill Evans, from A Tribe Called Quest to Joy Division, from Gong to Miles Davis, and even Prefuse 73. There is some blues in his music, but above all, there is that liberty that could only come from a 10-year background in jazz. Krazy Baldhead is not a DJ, he plays live -- with electro/jazz/hip-hop influences as shouting, stomping and scattershot as the mood on this record. Exhilarating.
