Music By Cavelight is Blockhead's debut album. It was released on the Ninja Tune label March 23, 2004. The entire album is instrumental with some scraps of vocal sampling. Apparently, Blockhead had finished this album three years prior, in 2001. Blockhead wasn't currently signed to a label, however, so he and his manager looked for a label to release the album. They eventually found Ninja Tune, sent them a demo, and the album was released. The sound of his album fit perfectly with Ninja Tune's sound. Blockhead simply claims 'it was fate'.

Though Blockhead may be a new name for fans of the label, underground rap fans already know him well for providing the productions behind Aesop Rock's Labor Days as well as tracks from Definitive Jux partners Murs, . Smash, and Party Fun Action Committee. His solo debut, Music by Cavelight, is a collection of comparatively understated, downtempo instrumentals which apparently function as Blockhead's bid for artistic prestige - a claim he hardly needed to make before, thanks to his talented productions

The only mention of the 2nd CD is the sticker on the cover, and the "2 Discs" mark on the CD case itself. CD 1 was recorded and mixed at The Dayliner Manor, and mastered at 10th Planet. This album is dedicated to the memory of Blockhead's father, Sidney Simon.

This album has an average beat per minute of 112 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 74/200 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Music by Cavelight. BPM Profile Music by Cavelight. Album starts at 88BPM, ends at 92BPM (+4), with tempos within the -BPM range. Try refreshing the page if dots are missing). Recent albums by Blockhead.

The album is rife with a variety of harrowing loops, as evidenced by the addictive, cleverly chopped guitar and layered strings of "Road Rage Breakdown" and the ebbing waves of bass, emotional piano, and orchestral arrangements on the stomping "Insomniac Olympics". One thing you'll notice, though, is a lack of pacing within each composition, as well as a general dearth of tonal variance throughout the span of the record. Anyone who has followed Blockhead's career would most likely attest to, one major factor of production as his Achilles' heel: the drums

Notes

This is a limited edition 2CD verion of "Music By Cavelight." The only mention of the 2nd CD is the sticker on the cover, and the "2 Discs" mark on the CD case itself.

CD 1 was recorded and mixed at The Dayliner Manor, and mastered at 10th Planet. It includes the MPG video at 720x324 resolution, and the Macromedia Flash player for the video.

CD 2 consists of tracks taken from Aesop Rock's Daylight (1 to 4) & Bazooka Tooth . The tracks listed on the CD are out of order, but listed correctly below. In addition, "Night Light" fades out early (the vocal version is about 2 minutes longer), and there is a 6th track listed on the disc (Babies With Guns) which is a pressing plant error and isn't actually on the disc.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Blockhead's father, Sidney Simon.

Comments:

Whitesmasher
When I saw Blockhead live, I picked up this 2CD set, and was quite happy after the fact. To be honest, I hadn't heard of this chap before his set. I was a bit confused why he played a couple Aesop Rock tracks during his show, and now I know why (Blockhead produced them). This album is a nice blend of dowtempo melodies and hiphop beats, plus some odd samples. Triptych Pt. 1 features a tweaked vocal sample, which could have been misused, but somehow fits right in. The other track which has gotten lodged in my head is Insomniac Olympics, although the video is a bit of a let-down. Over-all, a good album, with some splendid moments. The Aesop Rock instrumentals are a nice bonus, but the vocals make the tracks complete.
