DJHDD Colleen's work has always been beguiling with it's complicated rhythms, reminiscent of Steve Reich or Philip Glass. To be taken back through time, to listen to her the first album is a treat. There's something about the comfort, space & vibe(raphone) between these polyrhythmic loops, that take me to strange world journeys of Gamelan on acid. The simplicity is divine. Favorite track: Everyone Alive Wants Answers.

about

My first album, released in 2003 on The Leaf Label and made during the year 2002 in my tiny studio flat in Paris, while I was going through an unbelievable amount of records in the Paris music libraries, looking for gems which I could sample for this new music I was making on my first computer. The album also contains a 4-track tape recording from 1995 of my first-ever instrument, a small Bontempi organ I got as a child, on “A Swimming Pool Down the Railway Track”. At the time of making the album I was completing teacher training and was just hoping that this album would be released somewhere, somehow, and had no clue that it would be the first step on this path I’m still walking.
