the new full length album of dj sniff, is a carefully constructed parallel
space converging the past, present and the future. Recorded during his last
year of stay at STEIM, Europa is loaded heavily with subtle but emotional
contents. On one hand, this new work continues to demonstrate dj sniff’s use of
turntable as an instrument in the tradition of free-jazz and improvised
experimental music, on the other hand, it envisions a new form of mentality
that connects engraved memories from vinyl records with the “here and now”, and
that which in the process of “becoming”.
