Over the last 10 years, Zachary Mastoon has composed a diverse and critically-acclaimed catalog under the alias Caural, for such labels as Chocolate Industries, Mush, Plug Research, Sound in Color and many others. His song-oriented compositions and flair for unique sonic juxtaposition continue to set him apart from his contemporaries in the beat scene. Yet it was only by default - and to his dismay - that he found himself pigeonholed by any one genre. Having come from a lifetime of recorded music, Caural engages in SOUND more than form. However, always in search of the next step, Caural began bidding adieu to the electronic format, but not before finishing his swan song of sorts, ''Sorry, Underground Hip Hop Happened Ten Years Ago (For Regan)''. This rhythmic sound piece -- constructed entirely out of vocal samples of the word 'Yo' -- is a brilliant, fragmented journey through some of Mastoon's favorite moments in hip hop. ''Die Before You Die'' is a collection of some of the last material Caural produced before his signature Yamaha SU700 sampler was stolen from his apartment, which proved to be an ironic epilogue for Mastoon's musical alter-ego...from the driving, futuristic atmosphere of ''Dragon Top'', through the head-nodding, warm crackles of ''Sunburned'', to ''All Doors Open To The Same Room'' (a short and ominous piece based on the beep of his friend Feltbattery's mini-disc recorder capturing a hive of bees).
