In-Tune: Boom Bip

"Bryan Hollon has had his dusty fingers in the crates of old vinyl for quite sometime. It wasn't always like that. Before 1992, his life was mostly filled with guitars, drums and pianos along with the cassette tapes of Sonic Youth, Hendrix, Prince, Bowie and other musical heroes. "The times were a changing" and Bryan sought after a new medium in making noise, the turntable. In 1992 he set off on a path of discovering original hip-hop sample material on classic jazz and funk albums that littered the Cincinnati thrift stores. Once his arsenal was built, he began experimenting with looping and chopping the drums he discovered on the dirty "Headhunters?" record he claimed to be his favorite. Soon after he discovered a bass line on a Ron Carter record that fit perfectly in the groove of the sampled drums and then a string line from a David Axelrod album. The gates crashed open. Boom Bip is now embarking on a new full release as well as a compendium release featuring many of the remixes of his "Seed to Sun" tracks and his most recent Peel Sessions. He is also doing several remixes at the moment for artist on various labels. Boom Bip's drive to push the envelope and experiment with combining several genres is second to none and none have proven to do so as well as he." - Boom Bip
