Odd Nosdam - Flippies Best Tape (2xLP)
co-founder of the much revered Anticon label.A string of critically lauded solo releases culminated in 2016s
‘Sisters’ LP (title track remixed by Boards of Canada) and this years ‘Mirrors’ LP which saw the West Coast
producer at the peak of his powers. A massive 66 tracks over 4 sides of wax!! Dilla’s ‘Donuts’, since its release
in 2006, has deservedly been regarded as the benchmark for adventurous beat-tape construction. With ‘Flippies’,
Odd Nosdam picks up the blueprint and takes aim at the next level. Digging fathoms deep in the crates, his source
material comes from super rare records that you’ve never heard of, many of them private pressings. From
plaintive deep soul cuts, gritty chitlin’ circuit funk, blues-ey 60s garage band sessions, through to some seriously
heavy psych-rock freakouts and all manner of wierdness in between, the scope of this record is mind bending. But
it doesn’t stop there, mashed up into this heady brew you’ll also pick up hints of gospel, jazz, dub and spacey west
coast acid. A calypso steel band even makes an appearance at one point! And the whole thing is neatly stitched
together with snatches of film dialogue providing the narrative thread. So many disparate influences could make
for an unfocussed, smorgasbord of a record but Nosdam has honed his skills over the years to such a degree that
these 66 tracks, 80 mins in total, have been sculpted and shaped with rapier precision into a work that is as lithe
and supple as it is kaleidoscopic and exhilarating. In a word, breathtaking.
