Released the same day as Europa, The Fucked Up Beat’s Europa II is a complementary release that focuses on a different aspect of their style
The Fucked Up Beat in Europa sees a new level of production and musicality for the duo of Eddie Palmer and Brett Zehner, but keeps their artistic vision.
Despite their list of tags for this release, I decided that the best way to describe The Fucked Up Beats music is: Schizo-Noir-Trip-Hop. But, that’s probably the easiest part to explain about this release.
blocSonic has re-started producing a series of releases designed to expose listeners to artists they feel have been overlooked. And the first one of these releases I have encountered is introducing Mr. & Mrs. Smith to me.
Studio Noir uses samples of older jazz recordings to provide a sonic version of the deaths of 16 actresses from the 1920’s through the 1940’s.
