i know! sounds FUN, doesn’t it!! well don’t get too excited. it’s really just French for “gapefruit”. but it is also the name of a collaboration of two individuals, Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, who actually DO seem like a lot of fun! i think they might be from San Fransisco, but i am not sure (the only reason i guess that city is because they advertise having 2 shows in SF).

the most interesting thing about the music these two make is that they videotape making every sound used in the music they create. with this video, they collage it together and show every sound that they use, including voices and drums and other miscellaneous instruments they utilize. it’s as if they use the video as a beat machine and, well, it’s hard to explain i guess…

you should have a look for yourself:

“turntablism: to use the turntable in the spirit of an intrument.”

there are some amazing DJ’s out there. typically, when your seeing turntablism happenin in front of you, you see one person mixing and scratching and it’s a grand ‘ol time. but when 4 people get up on stage and there are 5 turntables, things get pretty interesting. the fact that there are 4 synchronized DJ’s on a astage at once is impressive in and of itself. but this group, Cout 2 Cross, are so coordinated that they even have little  moves they bust out while scratching! kinda dumb sounding when you write it out, but simply unreal when you see it for yourself.

on top of it being impressive that 4 people can stand next to each other and scratch records in unison, they actually end up creating really cool musical compositions with their technique. the video posted shows clips from the 2005 DMC world DJ championships (http://www.dmcdjchamps.com/). they have a wonderful dynamic together, and a solid sound.

here’s a link to an interview with them if you’re interested, which you probably should be: http://www.spinscience.org.uk/

i don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but the title of the video pretty much says it all. this has got to be the DUMBEST contestant EVAR on any show. i have no idea as to how on Earth she mucked this up…
