ABOUT THE SERIES
Rip and Rebind is an anthropological snapshot of life taken with hip-hop’s camera. Through a collaged narrative reflecting the mash-up genre who’s origins are largely found in Hip-Hop, this sonic journey confirms that the music is a reflection of the people. The series aims to preserve an honest perception of an artistic expression that has too often been commodified. Sample-heavy and audibly rich, Rip and Rebind is essentially cultural “crate-digging.”
