Biography

Somewhere back in the mid-90's a fresh faced Brazilian ex-pat living in the UK decided he was going to put down his harmonica, pick up a sampler, and name himself after a Stephen King novel. The resulting album, Cujo's 'Adventures In Foam' (released on Ninebar records, later reissued on Ninja Tune) signaled Amon Tobin's entry into the world of music. Well actually ...

Review

"A journey to the dark side of dance… Play Loud." -- Zoo Weekly, 16th July 2004

"A mish-mash mix from the dark side; drum’n’bass, industrial screeching scratched live with audience appreciation thrown in for good measure." -- Time Out, 4th August 2004

"This albums got dirt, funk and some really mean breaks… Fans of Tobin are going to love this." -- Future Music, August 2004

Well, where do i start?
If you have bought the previous Solid Steel releases and enjoyed thier mix of Hip-Hop/Funk/Breaks and was expecting more of the same, you will be dissapointed.
If you are a fan of Amon's down-tempo grooves, you wont find many on here.
If you do like a bit of furious drum & bass, can appreciate great mixing skills and the new all singing and dancing technology behind this set('Final Scratch'-Look it up & act like you know), then you will absoulty fall in love with this.
I on the other hand, am not a big drum & bass fan. I like some of it, but not a lot. This however, does rock. The more i listen, the more i like. Especialy the 4-way mix of some of his own work, then finishing it all off with the Velvet Underground. ("Shiny shiny, shiny boots of leather...")
Well, in conclusion:
Don't buy this if you don't like drum & bass.
Do buy it if you like Amon's faster stuff, D&B, great mixing or if you are just looking at expanding your musical horizons.

I originally bought this album on the advice of a (misguiding) magazine review and with a love of everything that Ninja Tunes have released before. The magazine in question said that the entire album was created using only two records and an extensive library of samples. This sounded to unique to be true, and one look at the cd case provided the proof that it indeed was. However, as the cd was ninja tunes and was listed under "chill out" in the magazine (also not true) i bought the album regardless, having never actually heard of Amon Tobin before. When i got the album home, pressed play and read the booklet i realised in horror that this album was actually a dark and moody collection of drum and bass, but i continued to listen, intent to hear how DJ Food, Dizzee Rascal and The Velvet Underground could possibly form part of the same mix. By the final song i was not only a fan of the album, but also a fan of drum and bass, something i thought i would never say. That night i played this album to a group of friends. Again, non of them were fans of drum and bass, but i just told them to wait until halfway through song 2. This is the point at which the album really starts (Tobin does not rush an introduction if it doesn't need rushing), the beat dropped and the expression on their faces was great, this album is now a favourite with all my friends. It seems the aforementioned magazine's journalist was getting confused by the technology employed to create this album, it was not created using only two records, Amon Tobin actually used no vinyl at all while recording this set, he used a computer program called FinalScratch, yet Tobin is quick to point out that he still does all of the mixing himself, he just carries a laptop instead of a record box.Read more ›

Not quite what you might expect from Amon Tobin but nevertheless an utterly assured performance from an extremely talented musician. The majority of tracks are more akin to drum and bass than his own work but, when you feel the rhythm of the mix, you are willing to forgive him for it. The set still contains a few Tobin tracks as well as his trademark sampling and mixing but what really strikes me about this album is that I have to listen to the whole thing each time I play it. Skipping tracks on this album really does detract from the experience. Also, considering how rarely he tours, this may be as close as you will ever get to seeing the man live. In short, buy this album to complement your Amon Tobin collection - you won't be disappointed.

Amon Tobin stands out in the Ninja Tune catalogue as something thats just a bit different. Where most of the vibe of Ninja tends to come from the happy and funky influence of the Good Ship Hip Hop, Amon tends to lean towards dark chemical beats from the Ghost Ship Drum & Bass. This mix goes some way towards explaining where his own heavy beats are derived from.
Recorded live you get to hear everything on this mix, whoops of crowd appreciation, little slips here and there, but (thankfully) recorded so well that you don't lose any definition with the sound as is so easy and vital not to do with our modern beats and breaks. The live mix style instantly gives this mix a sense of excitement as Amon begins weaving together dark, clanking, industrial hip hop beats (which wouldn't sound drastically out of place on something like Music For The Jilted Generation). Booming, cavenous sounds which occasionally give way to sinister ambient soundtracky breakdowns. Its when the mix shifts up a gear into very Moving Shadow-eqsue drum and bass, that things get really special. The electronic drum and bass weaves in and out of Amon's own almost fast jazz breaks.
Its such an interesting mix in the Solid Steel series and will stand out for breaking the norm of what has come so far. Its the mix I find closest in spirit in the entire series to that which all are judged against, Coldcut's 70 Minutes of Madness for Journeys By DJs. Snap this up but ensure that the JDJ mix is living in your collection as soon as possible if it is not already.
