Handmade Evil: Out Now!
Out today, my new album Handmade Evil was played entirely by hand on two hardware samplers. Here is what some fine folks had to say:
As a progenitor to what became the modern beat music, Caural is unmatched in his pure understanding of what fundamental elements make a dope progressing beat. The bedroom production platform that he revisits on Handmade Evil allows these boundless arrangements to come about by stripping down the songwriting to just his core imaginative instincts: this is truly a labor of love. Not needing any scene, mythology or social media fanfare to craft a collection undeniable beat gems, he is the purest type of producer in an era of on-line saturation and calculated turn-ups.
- Regan Farquhar / Busdriver (Big Dada)
"I Grab The Microphone & Fuck It Up" describes everything for me in this record: melodic beats and noise coming together in one record. Love it!
- Teebs (Brainfeeder)
Caural's music has always pushed boundaries. This new record is no exception. [This is an] incredible performance of tunes he's never released until now - no computers, pretty mind blowing! He's been a big influence on me since his first record dropped on Chocolate Industries in the early 2000's, and Handmade Evil further cements his place as one of the innovators of electronic music.
- Sweatson Klank (Project Mooncircle, Dublab, Tone & Manor)
Rough, rugged, raw, genius, and lovely live instrumental Hip-Hop before it was labeled a "Beat Scene".
- KRTS (Project Mooncircle)
