Artist Info

Expressway Yo-Yo Dieting

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Pat Maherr aka Expressway Yo-Yo Dieting (aka Sisprum Vish, Indignant Senility, Diamond Catalog) first appeared on the radar with the dilapidated droneworks of his Indignant Senility releases. This, however, is a very different affair, concerned with ultra-slow and stodgy hiphop, chopped and screwed with a lo-fi experimental agenda. The sludgy pace of the chopped 'n screwed aesthetic was originally borne in deepest Texas with the codeine-imbibed beats of DJ Screw but has since been adopted everywhere, from the Drag beats of Salem and oOoOO to remixes of Justin Bieber, admittedly taking it to the nth degree. In the hands of Expressway Yo-Yo Dieting it becomes a method of enhancing his music's psychedelic potential, intensely trapping listeners in-the-moment with the effect of some impossibly strong GM marijuana, drowning heads in ultra-phuggy samples time-stretched and pitch bent until the ghouls between their crevices are released in some kind of Burroughs-ian edit technique. Of course, some people are gonna be like "f*ck that, I can slow some tunes down until they're practically crippled", maybe, but here it's all about Maherr's mysteriously inert, gravity crushed arrangements, those points deep in the track when it suddenly all makes sense, or gradually reaches such a cataleptic tempo that you're almost physically affected, and certainly hypnotized at the very least. Like theLil B record, this is a radical inversion of hiphop whose effect on the future is yet to be seen.
