How to Kill a Boombox is a compilation of tracks produced by Raz Mesinai between 1989 and 1992, consisting of ruff beats made with simple tools, recorded directly into cassette. This first volume of these highly prismatic productions were made during a very special and rather pernicious moment when New York was "a city pulsing with tensions", and its club scene a real reflection of such urban jitters.
"I’d used the Multivox alongside a turntable, microphone and a two-track cassette tape recorder to produce my first guerrilla cassette productions, starting with a series of ambient / noise / distorted acid break / house albums called “Psycho Beats” under the band name “Psy Co.” and “Dj Tab”, then I followed up with the “Multivox Series as “X-On”, and The Bedouin, changing to Badawi years later."
