Altered Beats - Assassin Knowledges Of The Remanipulated (1996)

One of my all-time favorite Laswell projects and a favorite album in my collection.  Turntablism and some paranoid samples given a Bill Laswell touch.

For those who remember (and for those who don't) DXT's performance at the Grammy Awards changed everything:

The 'scratch' had gone mainstream and would influence an entire generation of turntablists.  The musical world would - thankfully - never be the same.

Another HTCIS exlusive - the UK version with the bonus track of DXT's remix of Bootsy Collins' "If 6 Minutes Was 9 Minutes."
