Broadcaster’s back, pushing the boundaries once again with his first full-length album, Folksploitation. Featuring the unlikely juxtaposition of the vocals of folk icon Peggy Seeger and Broadcaster’s dub, hip hop, funk and techno beats, it turns the highly improbable into the possible, the traditional into the experimental and a conundrum into artistry.

“There’s a burgeoning Scottish tradition of roots remixing … but it’s rarely done as smoothly as Folksploitation” 4 stars, i Newspaper (The Independent)

“Every track on Folksploitation is awesome and for once I don’t hesitate to use that word. Folksploitation is a masterpiece.” Indie Showcase

“This is sublime….. Seeger seems to be singing to us from the end of time itself - (the video) gives me goosebumps every time I watch it.” Spiral Earth

“Folksploitation has already ignited a whole new wave of interest in the woman whose voice cuts like the chant of a shamen across Broadcaster’s edgy techno beats with all the wisdom of the ages. It’s an utterly absorbing and frequently exhilarating experience. ….. Folksploitation is a thrilling, hypnotic experiment which Seeger’s die-hard fans will probably approach with trepidation. But ultimately, it’s a surprising triumph for this redoubtable singer’s capacity to push the boundaries and make her listeners think again.” Cry Me A Torch Song Blog
