Max Tannone «Mos Dub» [2010]

In his seminal essay Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit, the esteemed philosopher and scientific stoner Walter Benjamin explained how technology liberated arts. The mere fact of being duplicable virtually to the infinite, got rid of the fastidious aura of uniqueness that every piece of art previously had, and that ultimately made it one of the tools of The Man. Reproducible art, on the contrary, belongs to the people.

New York-based DJ and producer Max Tannone, like other mashup artists, has taken this lesson to a further level. He makes new art by combining existing artifacts in a new, unique way. In his Mos Dub project the lyrics of rapper Mos Def are laid on a groovy soundscape of unmistakable reggae rhythms even non-rastafarians will recognise.

And being a true Benjaminian, Max delivers it for free, because that's what the people want. Check it out - - - > here,
