Mississippi sample-squisher Deepak Mantena, a/k/a Junk Culture, is signed to the same label as Girl Talk, but uses his plunder-phonics powers to make chillaxed, nostalgic, spaced-out r&b with tiny, funky shards of whatever. Somewhere between classic beatwise slapchop-funk such as Art Of Noise and contemporary daydream believers such as Delorean, Mantena giddily steals your music, cuts it into adorable pieces, and runs the mess through a handheld recorder to get a mushy warmth. With Common Loon and the Diggs.
