With her Snares-influences fading, Buttress returned to her unique musickal place, straddling pop, mashup, and breakcore, this time creating a musical flow that brings to mind her ground-breaking “MegaMegamix”, and the “meme-couplets” of “MemeCore”. With a blend of glitch-pop and mashcore, and such sources as Madonna, Dethklok, Bowie, Dead Kennedys, Portishead, and Popcorn, O’Kneel creates a break-heavy megamix that pauses only to deliver every expletive Samuel L Jackson unleashes in “Pulp Fiction”, condensed into one single surreal stream of abuse, before screeching back off again into popmangled madness. This is the album that MySpace wouldn’t let her upload.

Buttress decided to follow her accessible, poppy, enjoyable album “Hard DadaPop” with one of the most difficult listens she’s ever created. Although she writes this album off as simply “what happens when I listen to too much Venetian Snares”, it still has the unmistakable “O’Kneel” stamp all over it. Sure, it’s mostly all in 7, sure, it’s 100% extreme digital breakcore, and, sure, it’s filled with stretched and glitched noise passages that would make Mr Funk shake his furry head, but it also incorporates enough elements of Billy Idol, Black Sabbath, Operator Please, and I Dream Of Genie that it could only be the work of B’O’K. More like an EP that remixes itself three times than an album.

With the tenth in the compop series “Classic Hits: Live 2007” being dedicated to live reinterpretations of many of her classic pieces (transformed through a CDJ and several guitar pedals), this return to the studio took Buttress to new realms entirely. Inspired and freshened, her ear turned once again to the multi-mash-up, and pushing the genre as far as it could go. One of her poppiest releases since “Hyperpop”, this album sees Bjork and Bowie hijacked into glitch-n-bass, Led Zeppelin and Young MC fused at the riff, and Enya coupling with Morbid Angel’s drummer, all glued together with The Knife’s “Heartbeats”, and ending with a long drifting live track from 2006.

These are the sounds received from our first interdimensional probe, Asmoir. This probe is exploring unknown and unheard somewheres, elsewheres. Whilst much of the data received from the probe is proving to be, for the time being, nonsensical, auditory recordings are proving to be of interest. It is not known if these recordings are accurate representations of the ‘sound’ in these locations.
