is a fiendish sampling genie, floating through a world of record collections, television, and surrealist literature, warping and twisting large portions of all he sees and hears into a postmodern hip hop collage. Unlike other sample-based downtempo artists (DJs Shadow, Vadim and Krush, Autechre, Kruder & Dorfmeister etc.), who probably spend a great deal of time pouring their souls into their flawless, polished final cuts composed largely of forgotten, impossible-to-identify samples that don't even sound like samples, Marcus B. leaves it a bit rough at the edges.
