Tom Rimshot is a new face at Recycled Plastics. He specializes in making dedicated tracks for both dancefloor and deep listening purposes, but when he's not turning the Yamaha QY70 into rhythmic quicksand, you can call him Brian.
Tom Rimshot Plays The QY70 is the first of what will likely be several records exploring the tonal and melodic possibilities of drums, drums and more drums, each time with the rule of utilizing a single make and model of drum machine. On this debut volume, Mr. Rimshot advances studies with the Yamaha QY70, a stellar little sequencer built in 1997, when Mr. Rimshot was but a lad of 14 years. With its soft buttons and non-backlit LED screen, much like that of a Nintendo Game Boy, the QY70 can often be overlooked as a dinosaur of its time. However, we would beg to differ on that topic, citing the 70's robust library of "XG" sounds and a slew of powerful editing capabilities - making the cute little thing the electronic musician's equivalent of an acoustic guitar. Take it anywhere, it runs on batteries, and you can make entire albums with it, and only it.
Tom Rimshot does not attempt to push this machine to whatever boundaries it exists within, rather, he prefers to let it shine by casting all his weight into the QY's rhythmic programming and playing in it like a swimming pool - sometimes with graceful backstrokes and other times with big cannonballs. Recommended for fans of Profan, Rephlex and Kompakt's Speicher Series.

Astonishingly good electronic tunes for a tenner and for a good cause. As well as titans 808 State, Autechre, Plaid, B12, etc... the lesser known artists shine. Get and enjoy! Played Quandary Wand at my wedding after Halcyon by Orbital. :) Egg Wizard
