Collapse of the Wave Function/ DMX Krew

Artist: DMX Krew
Title: Collapse of the Wave Function
Label: Rephlex

--By David Bolster, translated by Cara Steenstra

Ed DMX's mini-release "Collapse of the Wave Function" is indeed, as his label mentions, "quite simply, different from anything else Ed has ever done before." Though it does carry the characteristic DMX '80s drones and low-key production of his earlier work, tracks often verge into slow, soft requiem-type pieces before returning to themes better suited to a cartoon version of Night Rider. Yet the album retains a curious pull for a late-night listen in a dark room with a glass of wine. It's almost tempting to call the album an electronic joke, before the listener starts to find himself humming half the songs on the way into work the next day. DMX is rumored to use no synths prior to 1985 and is often seen accompanying himself beat boxing during sets. If nothing else the title, referring to a relatively obscure theory on the dual nature of wave/particles, is interesting.
