Gold Teeth Thief
Record label: Soot (Spain)
Format: CD
Release date: November 2001

I walked in on the last five minutes of this in a record shop and had to find out what it was. Since then, I play it at least once a week on the job. /rupture brings the noise with a live mix on three decks, crossing the lines of jungle, hardcore, hip-hop, dancehall, ambient, IDM, and avant-garde. From Missy Elliott to Muslimgauze, from Spragga Benz and Bounty Killer to Venetian Snares and Kid 606, the eyebrow-raising moments come one after the other. /rupture also throws in some of their own tracks (recorded on various labels) as well as a few from counterparts like Nettle and DJ Scud. The most diverse mix Iíve heard in 2001.
