Up, Bustle & OutUp, Bustle & Out

With influences drawn from diverse sources all over the world — from Istanbul to Bolivia, Andalusia to North Africa — Up, Bustle and Out are one of the harder to pin down groups on the experimental breakbeat landscape. Hailing from the English town of Bristol, home also to Tricky and Massive Attack, Up, Bustle and Out comprise producers Rupert Mould and D. "Ein" Fell, who formed the group in the early '90s as an adjunct to their respective interests in non-Western musics, funk and soul, jazz, and experimental underground club styles like house, techno, ambient, and trip-hop. 


The jazz/hip-hop fusion collective Us3 scored a major hit in 1994 with Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia), a song that displayed the group's fondness for sampling classic recordings on the Blue Note label (in this case, Herbie Hancock's Cantaloupe Island). The group was founded in London in 1991 when concert promoter and jazz writer Geoff Wilkinson met Mel Simpson, who was writing music for television shows and ad jingles and had once played keyboards with John Mayall.

Weather ReportWeather Report

Weather Report started out as a jazz equivalent of what the rock world in 1970 was calling a "supergroup." But unlike most of the rock supergroups, this one not only kept going for a good 15 years, it more than lived up to its billing, practically defining the state of the jazz-rock art throughout almost all of its run.

Xploding PlastixXploding Plastix

Xploding Plastix is a Norwegian two-man band playing electrofunk/big beat music with elements of jazz. Jens Petter Nilsen and Hallvard Wennersberg Hagen (formerly in Norwegian black metal band Kvist) formed the group in early 1999, and submitted their first demotape in 2000. 


Budapest-based Yonderboi, born László Fogarasi Jr. in Kaposvár, Hungary, is an equally modest and self-assured figure in the world of downtempo electronica.
