James Rutledge

Who is James Rutledge and what is his Great Ecstasy? Whither does it come from? Is it sexual, religious, drug fuelled or purely a musical ecstasy? I’m sure you know the answer: it’s the sound of a young an lost in a sea of moody noise noodle, in over his head and almost drowning in a dense musical trope.

 

You think you know James Rutledge? There’s no doubt he’s an arty fucker… In the past James has released obscure sample based collage records under the name Pedro but recently took a right turn and remixed loads of trendy bands like Bloc Party, MGMT and Telepathe. Hell, he’s even done a four-hour remix of Radiohead! And he’s in the NME’s Future 50 list as well as Urb’s Next 100.

 

Is that enough information? We could wibble on about how fans of Eno, Jeck, Fuck Buttons, Glass, Growing, Metal Machine Music, Reich, Sonic Youth etc. might dig this record… But really, who cares? Just cast off your earthly shackles and get ecstatic. Become one with James and share in his Great Ecstasy.
