BINKBEATS meticulously reconstructs songs he loves
Operating from what looks like a storage room filled with weird and out of time instruments, Binkbeats has become an unparalleled musical wizard. He received worldwide acclaim for his Beats Unraveled series on Boiler Room, in which he meticulously deconstructs electronic tracks and rebuilds them in a single live take. Reinterpretating the music of Madlib, Flying Lotus, Aphex Twin and J. Dilla with instruments ranging from vibraphone, guzheng (Chinese harp), turntables, exotic percussion, voice, and typewriter, he quickly received the praise he deserved.
Having spent a lot of time with other people’s music, Binkbeats’ focus has now shifted to his personal material. His love for the artists mentioned earlier resonates in his own songs: ranging from spun out esoteric song statues to pumped up aggressiveness – it’s all there. Binkbeats on stage surrounds himself with over 50 instruments which he samples, tweaks and arranges in a dazzling manner.
