Amon Tobin and Noisia take your ears on a wild and noisy ride (audio)
I haven’t been keeping up with Amon Tobin since ISAN, which seemed to be the most divisive album of his career (at least according to Pitchfork, anyway). I feel kinda bad about that since I think his ventures into sound design and digital destruction have potential to be immensely fascinating. Case in point is this remix he did for Two Fingers partner and appropriately named producer, Noisia for a track called “Vigilantes”. The best the way to describe this remix of it is dub step/bass music meets sound collage, but even that doesn’t do this track enough justice for the wild and crazy ride it takes you on. Lots of stereo panning, with musical and found textures flying across the mix make for an uneasy listening that might be too off-putting for some, but is right up my alley. If you’re looking for something a little more musically “adventurous”, definitely check this out.
