Smoke Notes

Wellington-based Miles Tilly aka Audiosauce has been a busy man over the last two years since the release of 'Diversecity', the first Audiosauce album and Capital Recordings' first single artist release, back in July 2002. Work began in August 2002, a mere six weeks after the release of his first album, with 'Contimental Drift' being envisioned by Miles as a more varied piece than 'Diversecity'. The underlying theme was of skipping through a crackly old radio, hence the use of interludes and the broad range of musical styles and elements, ranging from instrumental hip-hop to drum&bass to jazzy broken beats to soulful electronic folk to chunky house beats and all musical destinations beyond. While the central theme remained, the core of the album has changed and changed and changed again over the course of the last two years, as Miles revised and expaned the scope of his original idea. Vocals were recorded with Miss Tyc aka Bex Riley (singer on the hit Whats Down Low by Bailtercell & Schumacher), a 12 with four of the tracks from the album was released (the 'Covert Operation EP'), two videos were completed with animator Paul Herschell, including the award winning Bee Bo (Special Commendation for Animation, Kodak Music Clip Awards 2003) and Miles made it to the finals of the 2003 Heineken Found at Thirst DJ/producer competition. Finally in April/May of this year, the 24 tracks that comprise 'Contimental Drift' were pulled together, then sequenced as the madness turned into method. Mastering was given over to the more than capable hands of Jeremy 50Hz Geor, and sleeve design once again to Tana Mitchell. The result is an album, that while working within the various realms of contemporary beat-based music, is a thoroughly cohesive and enjoyably understated masterpiece, which continues to reward the listener with each and every play. This beautiful album comes highly recommended, especially for fans of other such NZ delights as 50Hz, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Soane, Shapeshifter, Flash Harry, Sola Rosa, Minuit, Nomad and of course the various Loop and Capital compilations. Kudos must go to both Miles and Capital Recordings - this is a world class release.
