There are four okapis: Okapi #1 is Filippo Paolini, an Italian turntablist and sample cutup artist. Okapi #2 are a young Israeli Funk band, only recently formed. The band have record one song, Funkylulu, Which will be broadcasted on the radio soon. Filippo (#1) has recorded as one half of the duo Metaxu (with Maurizio Martusciello) and also the trio Dogon, and he’s performed on RAI (Italian state radio) and collaborated with noted avant-turntablist Christian Marclay. "Where's the Beef?" marks the first solo album from Okapi. Filippo uses his turntables and computer to create music completely outside of the hip-hop school of chopped up music. Instead he has created an album that veers from orchestral to lounge to quirky experimental music, while maintaining a delicate and spacious sound throughout.

His skill at sample manipulation is really quite amazing. Matt Haines, aka The Rip Off Artist and the owner of the label, has asked repeatedly “how does he do that?!” (And Matt’s no slouch behind the sampler controls!) In fact, before the label would sign Filippo they asked for proof that he wasn’t just lifting entire sections of music from other sources. When he sent screen shots of his computer, there it was: hundreds of miniscule sample fragments, all connected into an seamless whole. Simply incredible.
