BEBETUNE$ – inhale C-4 $$$$$
BEBETUNE$ is the new project from the artist James Ferraro. Ferraro grew up in NY & now lives in LA. He has been releasing underground albums since 2006 & this year release a couple of concept albums Condo Pets & Far Side Virtual. FACT Magazine gave Far Side Virtual a perfect score & it ranked #6 on their top 50 albums of 2011.
This new album also has the feel of a concept album, with elements of hip hop & lots of Ferraro’s electronic style. Inhale C-4 $$$$$ is pretty strange & awesome all at the same time. A feeling I seem to get every time I listen to Ferraro’s work. This album most of the time feels like an electronic album, until a few tracks in when you get some of the hip hop inspired beats & the occasional sped up or slowed lyrics such as, “swag.”
