For the lucky few who have witnessed Jukka Vallisto's music collection, said to be rivalling the Library of Alexandria (or Tikkurila at least) in the scope and depth of knowledge, it comes as a little surprise that his own music is so packed with layers of musical and auditive references.
A prime example, Healthy Obsession is a tour de force in rhythmic editing. Vallisto shows no fear when he's forging together original parts, fragments of found sound, dialogue subtracted to monologue, obscure (and sometimes obscene) jazz and fossilized rock music via the time-consuming methods of trial and (t)error. The result is a curious peek at an alternative universe filled with unknown pleasures.
Enter Street Biz, another soul lost to audio markers and mp3 compression. Although the real personality of this claimed Portsmouth, UK civil servant and presumed Gains Road, Southsea hermit remains to be confirmed, one thing is certain: The lad must be loaded with all the beer money he's been saving by staying at home editing music, these versions of Lost Weight's tracks among others, and thus having no life whatsoever.
Track #1 composed, recorded and mixed by Jukka Vallisto at Damp Studios, Leeds, in the year 2000. Tracks 2, 3 and 4 recorded by Street Biz at Submerged Samplers, Portsmouth, 2001.
