The Science of Beards

Beard Science's 'Razor Sharp Edits', will be hitting the stores any minute now (in cd format first, vinyl to follow later); this highly anticipated product is the result of many many hours of exchanging, reworking, collaborating and yes... editing some pretty special material, shared across the Internet, amongst a mystery team of the beard diaspora; talented cultivators of facial hair from around the globe (UK, US, Japan, Europe) . This co-op of Disco Scientists have the ultimate lab, a world wide web network of connected bedrooms & studios where the controversial (to some) dark art of editing tracks is experimented with, fine tuned, and certainly mastered. With 9 edits on the album, this is that healthy dose of exceptional, most definitely well brewed & diverse reworkings that some of us have long been waiting for, no tired cut ups here. I highly recommend this readers, place your orders now, this is the Disco motherload!!

I have been given an edit for all of you to check out, it's not on the album, which maybe doesn't help you perfectly taste the pure pleasures of this lovely release, nevertheless this take on Alphaville's 'Big in Japan' is pretty hot. Willy Japan, rumoured to be one Marius Circus, does a good job of stretching out this camp (I always thought so) 80's pop hit, turning it into a midtempo, beats heavy, slightly druggy cut up. Willy says it's an early, rough version, which in this case works rather well. Now to get a better idea of what's on the album head on over to the Beard Science myspace page and check out some of those killer edits from the album.

Note: I forgot to mention more edits from Beard Science will be up on Tape shortly...
