To commemorate the thirtieth entry into the Blue Series catalogue, DJ Spooky has cooked up a very special new album. With the entire Blue Series spread out before him, Spooky has expertly sorted, sifted, chopped and recombined this vast amount of music into a shining new work that teases out the lines between jazz and hip-hop, and then obliterates those lines.
The result is Celestial Mechanix: The Blue Series MasterMix," a no-holds-barred re-envisioning of some of the most visionary jazz of the 21st Century.
