Pusherman Tago-Mago

Remixing is raised to art status when you give new life to music, any type of music. To see potential in a boring cut, to push the envelope all the way to different galaxies, to let your mind wander where the originary intention left off, all this presumes passion and marquees lighting up over your head as opposed to a mere lightbulb.

A writer, most of the cases, is a passionate reader and afterwards a remixer of words. Tago-Mago does that with music. I may not like each and every track but that would be a strange and new feeling anyway. Rarely have I heard a reinvention of music I was, or thought I was, familiar with, in such unexpected ways. His major influence is Can, and the mixes are inspired by a variety of hip hop and electronica artists.

Când aud “remix” parcă deja am o mică reținere. Dar am dat click și e bine! Chiar dacă experimental e cuvântul care nu-mi place și pe care trebuie să-l lipesc aici ca un post-it pentru posteritate- albumul lui Tago-Mago este o panoplie de hip hop și electronica uneori accelerată, alteori sedată. Ce-a ieșit din pasiunea lui pentru Can (pe care-i ascultă de la 14 ani).. De exemplu, i-a combinat pe Marvin Gaye si Wu-Tang Clan, pe Breakbeat Era si Massive Attack.
