Product Notes

Allow me, if you will, to take you on a strange journey. A journey into a musical landscape full of block-rocking beats, swirling guitar flurries, pulsating electro sounds, a waft of the choicest Jamaican dub, cool jazz vibes, of snappy break beats, and of the finest hip-hop; a journey into the incredibly strange world of Turbulent Soundscape. First was created a three CD set, that charted the Turbulent Soundscape voyage through it's formative years, showing the development of this ever evolving outfit that has grown out of a vibrant club-scene, held originally by the mighty Full Tilt at Camden's Electric Ballroom, at the time the world's longest running club night; also the likes of Slimelight, New York's 'Bat Cave', Tel Aviv's own 'Azimut', and Hollywood's 'Perversion'. From this dark under belly of society, one time Full Tilt main-man, Rex (scriber of music, producer, vocalist, guitarist, player of the didgeridoo and world class DJ within the alternative scene) hooked up with co-writer and producer (not to mention former online agony aunt and drugs counsellor for WellCoolStuff.com), Olly B. This was in the mid-to-late nineties, with a view to forming a 'Chemical Brothers for a new generation.' 'I started writing with Olly of the first four to five years of Turbulent Soundscape's existence,' explains Rex. 'Because a lot of what we were hearing at the clubs was rubbish, so we started writing music that was aimed specifically at the clubs we were DJ-ing in at that time.' He went on to say: 'Major influences then came from DJs I met whilst playing in places like Tel Aviv, Spain and Athens, from back street record stores in New York and L.A. and from UK underground scenes, these vibes in turn filtered into our ever-growing style of music.' The first release came in the shape of a remix for Kerrang cover artist, Kill II This Figure of Eight - available on the Full Tilt III Compilation. Rex had tracks on previous two compilations with ex-writing partner, Paul Cutts. The second release was a remix and production job for New York artist St. Eve. In mid-2001, the duo discovered two vocalists, when they turned up to free-style jam at the Turbulent Soundscape presented club-night, Sensory Overload; they were Christina Mae, once front woman of Norwegian act Via Dolorosa, also vibrant vocalist of Lux from London's underground punk scene, and 'G', rapper and veteran of five rap-metal based bands. From there on things moved up a pace with the release of the following three CDs: CD1: 'Wake the Fkuc up' shows a fledgling act growing up and developing their fledgling sounds, and brings together the best of the early dance floor successes, featuring international club hits, 'Temptation' and 'London' and UK club hit, 'Playground v.1'. In turn that grew into. CD2: 'Camden' indirectly named by J-Rok (of Swetbox) when he described Turbulent Soundscape's music as 'a Camden style of sound.' On this CD the dance beats are still pulsating away, but they run through a myriad of styles, incorporating Dub, Reggae, Break beats, guitar rock, and even Classical. This CD includes the New York, Sydney and UK club hit, 'Gorgeous'. CD3: 'Take 2 - And Call Me in the Mourning', which offers the listened more chilled jazzier vibes, and trip-hop beats. It's the sound of a fully formed band maturing. It is the sound of Turbulent Soundscape (featuring the ever popular, 'Break Every Rule'. So what's next? Although originally a studio-based project, they were challenged by Mute Records to turn their attentions towards the live arena. This set Turbulent Soundscape on a two-year quest to find the ideal line-up. Their debut show at the Purple Turtle in Camden was well received, but gave the band more ideas, so it was time for more writing and to make even further line-up changes. Over time, various musicians of all levels of fame came and went, until finally the current line-up naturally evolved out of this astounding alternative underground culture - and now every forthcoming gig promises to be a major event. The culture, which created this band, now finds them as one of the forces to be reckoned with as they promote their own club nights across the south of England. Rex still plays as an influential DJ, and other band members are involved in the promotion and management of Turbulent Soundscape's clubs and events. Now, in 2009, Turbulent Soundscape joins forces with US-based label Radio-Active-Music.com in preparation for the band's first international album release. More information coming soon!
