# #
As part of the producer team Breakout, Mr. Confuse was already a household name in the Funk and HipHop community in 2006. His idea to reinterpret Afrika Bambaataa's 'Planet Rock' as a Funk Breaks version gained Breakout massive international attention. 'Feel The Fire' Is his the debut solo album over 14 tracks Mr. Confuse takes us on an excursion from HipHop to Afro, Electro and Latin back to Funk. 'Feel The Fire' comes as an organic statement for the analogue link between HipHop and Funk as well as an authentic and up-to-date plea for the original brass arrangements in the Funk and Jazz music of the Seventies. Mr. Confuse -- ' My work sampler based. I look for parts of drum loops and other pieces in a record and build new music from it. This album was created in exactly that way." But sampling alone is not enough: 'When the structure is there I will go and meet the musicians I work with. I work pretty much autodidactic and very intuitive - this can turn out really bizarre from time to time. Sometimes I'm humming or buzzing the melody I'm looking for to the musicians. I do not play an instrument myself, except that I use the MIDI-keyboard to be able to work with plug-ins and think of melody and rhythm. The musicians I work with will turn the ideas which I have in my head into music." This concept is as exciting as it is hard work: I will return to my sampler with what the musicians played and often do a completely new cut. You may say that I use a musician as a sample library." Consequently recording 'Feel The Fire' took quite some time, exactly from the end of 2006 up to January 2008. In the end the complete album consists of about 10000 samples now. To finish an album like that is a matter of sweat and tears'
