|MH-242 Caural - Remembering Today
Remembering Today collects tracks recorded during the gap between Caural's 2001-2003 releases for Chocolate Industries and his relocation to New York. Originally from Chicago, Caural debuted in 2001 with the full-length, Initial Experiments In 3-D. He then joined the respected Chocolate Industries label, appeared on the compilation Urban Renewal Program, produced standout EPs in 2001 and 2003, and released his critial breakthrough full-length, Stars On My Ceiling in 2002. After moving to New York, he began work on a new album scheduled for release in late 2006. Remembering Today is both a companion piece to his earlier work and a link to his upcoming material. A series of snapshots from the life of an ever-evolving talent, it is the perfect set for Caural to both reintroduce himself to old listeners and court new in preparation for his next steps as an artist.
|A beautiful, near haunting mix - XLR8R / Offers much to appreciate - Grooves / It's real easy to love - Aiding & Abetting / Worthy of deep, focused study - Orlando Weekly / Each track packs its own little surprises if you listen carefully - 3Hive / Music simple enough to be sexy and complex enough to linger - Signal To Noise
|Best known for his 2002 breakthrough Stars on My Ceiling, Caural's (aka Zachary Mastoon) fusion of electronic, hip-hop and Eastern sounds has earned him a place next to Four Tet, Caribou (formerly Manitoba) and Prefuse 73, while his productions are still very much his own unique style. Remembering Today is an excellent overview of the music from this Chicago native (who now lives in New York City and is currently working on a new full-length), featuring unreleased material recorded between 2003 and 2005. - Other Music
