On Bollyhood Bass Remixes Vol. 2, you’ll hear the spirit David Starfire’s native region and Creole heritage mostly in the gutbucket funk that animates nearly every track – as well as in the hip hop
elements that he has distributed generously throughout the program. “The
Beat,” for example, features a charmingly squidgy synthesizer bass, rolling dhol drum, and
sharp-tongued rapping courtesy of guest MC with vocals by iCatching. “Shout It Out” prominently features some very
fine beatboxing (by Lynx) alongside an acoustic guitar-driven groove and even more rapping, all of it leavened by various Asian flavors. Other Caribbean influences are audible throughout the album as well: on “Baghdad,” the slow and trip-hoppy beat is interwoven with explicitly dubwise reverb and echo effects and punctuated by Jamaica-inflected vocal samples; “Load” piles on layers of science fiction dub effects as well, this time juxtaposed with keening Asian vocals.
