Deconstructed Live: Up, Bustle & Out (Ninja Tune) DJ Set (DC#25)

Dave Cridge came down to play Deconstructed Live a couple of times in 2002 and at a beach side venue in 2004, impressing us with both his chirpy manner and his chirp scratch – one of the most technically skillful DJ’s we had the pleasure of hosting. Along with some fantastic funk rarities (to this day we’re unable to provide a tracklist for  half of his set of funk and rare groove) and his turntable skills, he arrived with a choice crew, bringing members of Portishead with him on this first session for support. Audio is a little scratchy to start the first half of this set, but settles down a minute or so in – be patient.

Having directed funds into Cuba’s legendary Radio Rebelde for some time, Bristol-based sound bandits Up, Bustle & Out found themselves invited to Havana to record with an intergenerational squad of descarga players assembled by ex-Orquesta Aragon flautist Richard Eges.  The subsequent Master Sessions series, which fused contemporary production with traditional instrumentation, enjoyed favourable reviews across the board.
