2002 release, available again in light of all the new Señor Coconut madness. This is a Burnt Friedman mix of classic Atom/Señor Coconut tracks, creating the "new" artist Replicant Rumba Rockers. Señor Coconut has spent the last decade eccentrically cranking up and taking to a digital extreme techno and Latin style vocabularies. In the process, he either created new music or altered the familiar beyond recognition; the result is a priori progressive entertainment of an integrity fuelled by impromptu wit and imagination. His some 50 album releases on the Rather Interesting (RI) label seem like cultural artifacts from the remote future -- an invented world that does not automatically give the authentic preference over the fake. Burnt Friedman went through the Latin-inspired RI repertoire, and concocted a continuous mix. By drastically editing at times and subtly overdubbing at others, Burnt Friedman blends his own favorite RI moments into an emphatically rhythmic, acoustically coherent yet stylistically extravagant, audio cinemascape. He presents the fictional Replicant Rumba Rockers in a costume whose worldliness is self-evident -- draped at first in the traditional hues of simulation, but ultimately cloaked in their own inscrutable logic. Artists include: Señor Coconut, Erik Satin, Los Sampler's, Midisport, Silver Sound, Dropshadow Disease, Roger Tubesound Ensemble, Ondas and Silver Sound (feat. Lisa Carbon).
