Just at around the turn of this century HiTop released it’s first CD. It was by an innovating dj and producer named Ruben “Watch TV” Garcia, whose name attempts to unravel the irony of today’s most powerful form of mass media: television. Bored of trends and the same-old-same-old, he turned to his amigos, other DJs from Madrid, to collaborate on a new record he was putting together. From his makeshift studio in the back of Ama Records, he invited these DJs, specialists in funk, soul, electro, drum and bass, dub, hip hop, etc to meld with his distinctive downbeat style. Ruben scheduled each one in to bring their particular styles and samples, and many an afternoon was spent talking about music (and more importantly, for most), making it for the first time.

These sunny afternoon sessions were completed, and two 12″s and a CD were released under the name “The After School Special.” The reactions were very positive both in Spain and out, leaving people curious about this multifaceted producer and his intricate beatmaking.

Well, without much further ado, the second volume is ready for your listening pleasure! This time around Watch TV has enlisted collaborations of old partners, like Mondomo, El Gran Lapofsky, and Nava, and shuffled up new ones such as Headtric (not to mention Argentine sensation Axel Krygier on flute, and Alberto “Todoacien” Santos on guitar). You will also find Watch TV’s sought-after remixes for Norway’s Beady Belle, Argentina’s Axel Krygier, and New York’s El Gran Lapofsky. There’s even a Video Track to Another Dark Alley Scenario to check out on your computer courtesy of Oli Schneider of Headtric.
