Willful - Mick Muttley

Featuring an exclusive mix for Presto Samo, made by Mick Muttley of SubVersion.

"Wilful" is the culmination of open-mindedness, organisation and overdubbing. The principle was conceived from a gap in tastes. Rock The Dub's Khal once said that he found it difficult to get into ambient music. All the while his love of hip-hop remains steadfast.

"Wilful" is an attempt to merge the two into one cohesive hybrid. The "unmixed" version is the backing track, the final outcome a unique showcase of the talents of Busdriver and Mr. ShaoDow. These are Muttley's two favourite rappers. Therefore "Wilful" is both a call for accumulative appreciation, and an extension of Muttley's current mix archetypes.

Master tempo buttons enable pitch-shifting the ambiences underneath the rhymes and beats. ShaoDow and Busdriver are interviewed to dovetail with a supplmentary feature on SubVersion. Voice recordings are implemented to aid the flow of the audio file. The subjects covered extend the scope of the text copy. Together in wilfulness the objective becomes complete.
