Boomkat Product Review:
The fourth episode of the world famous and much trusted Solid Steel mix series is here and this time it comes from the Silent Brazilian, Amon Tobin. After a year and half of performing, tweaking and perfecting his DJ set, Amon found himself in Australia in the final stages of a long but rewarding tour. Every night of this antipodean leg was recorded, and it was decided that this memorable and sweaty night in Melbourne, with Amon under the distracting influences of drugs, alcohol and Ozzy girls, would be the perfect opportunity to add to the Solid Steel series. The whole dark and dirty episode was performed using Final Scratch which, combined with his laptop and a set of decks, means Amon can mix two special time coded records on the turntables in the normal way while in fact triggering music files on his computer. Amon has effortlessly incorporated many of his favourite aspects of drum and bass and heavy, heavy beats in the mix along with lush downtempo and even some Velvet Underground. The recording includes tracks he considers classics - old and new - with Suspicious Circumstance's 'Completely Real', Danny Breaks' 'Science Fu' and T Power's 'Cuba' getting a look in. As this set was made as a DJ alternative to Amon taking a band out on the road he includes his own material alongside the music that has influenced and inspired him. This mix reflects all of Amon's musical passions and showcases his superb DJ skills coupled to cutting edge technology. The CD booklet also has a unique entry code to a section of the Ninja Tune website where you can download an exclusive track and enter a competition to win Final Scratch itself. Recommended.
