After her explorations into bastard pop (her previous two albums were “Bastard Pop” and “MegaBastard”), Buttress wanted to return to the minutely-sliced memetic Frankenstein-techniques she had honed so well on her second Compop release “MegaMegamix”, but with an ear more attuned to artists like Squarepusher and Aphex Twin. As she describes it, she “wanted to push bastard pop into the shape of drum-n-bass, or something”, using artists like Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, the Black Eyed Peas, and Kelis as source material. Both poppy and jarring, both revolutionary and sentimental, this may be her most iconic and unique recording to date.
