pocket*galaxy This album is incredibly multi-faced and full of atmosphere. Fascinatingly cinematic downbeat tracks break out into tricky breakbeats and in between you are energetically driven by a dancefloor capable track like 'Sordid' for seven minutes. You can also listen to the album on the side, but the whole work really unfolds when you listen carefully and repeatedly. Favorite track: Nightlife.

Christopher Moklebust And so, Amon Tobin – this is not your average beat maker but someone who comprises a much broader musicality and a taste for a more bizarre plater of samples. If James Bond snuffed a few lines, I would assume the musical score of his missions would sound a bit something like this. The main themes will perplex, the percussive lines will daunt, and the overall feel will leave you on edge far after the songs have concluded. Favorite track: Nightlife.

about

Ninja Tune is not reknowneed for playing the cynical game of hip remixes. Very few drum and bass remixers have been released on the label, but of very high quality: Lemon D for DJ Food, Dillinga for Funki Porcini.

Amon Tobin, who produces himself some fine experimental breakbeats, with a unique latin flavour, has personally asked Danny Breaks to remix the track, while Dillinja actually asked to have a go.

The original track, the cool and groovy "Like Regular Chickens" is already a highlight of the forthcoming album. Both Danny Breaks and Dillinja have kept intact the vibe of the track, but the result is very different on either side. Danny Breaks goes for the seedy, smokey, jazz joint atmosphere while Dillinja goes more abstract and minimal, with sharp and heavy beats... Versatile and of high qualityt, this 12 should find its place in plenty of DJ boxes.
