Under the surface of this scene sits the mysterious Pro-Teens, a studio project led by prolific Karate Boogaloo drummer Hudson Whitlock. Shrouded in anonymity, The Pro-Teens are made up of a collective of Melbourne instrumentalists, with interchangeable members coming from bands such as Karate Boogaloo and Surprise Chef, performing under synonyms.
Symbolically led by keyboardist ‘Snooch Dodd’, 'I Flip My Life Every Time I Fly' marries the soul/funk roots of sample culture with the principles of boom-bap hip hop. In this regard, the music can be likened equally to MF DOOM, El Michels Affair, Curtis Mayfield's film scores or the European library music of the 1970s.
Recorded in the College Of Knowledge studio in Coburg, Melbourne, Australia, the album was recorded in the framework of 1970s analogue studio production. All tracks were recorded live to 8- track tape machine, with dense instrumentation of synthesisers, organs, percussion, cello, violin, kalimba and more sitting on a bed of a heavy-hitting funk rhythm section.
