Meat Beat Manifesto Storm The Studio R.M.X.S.
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: Tino Corp
Raw. Fat. Menacing. Funky. Put all these adjectives in "front of beats" to describe Jack Dangers's first Meat Beat Manifesto LP, 1989's Storm the Studio. They also describe this remix compilation, starting off with a versus between Dangers and longtime Tino Corp pal Ben Stokes called "Cease to Exist." The monster hip-hop break that populated the first three MBM albums gets run through a spatial expander; the thing's as wide as a Mac truck, roaring with digitized vocals and little else. Oh yeah, the rest: Eight Frozen Modules pistol-whips "God O.D." with a fully-loaded laptop, while Twilight Circus Sound System, Jonah Sharp, DJ Swamp and The Opus also make fine contributions. One non-sequitur selection, microsound experimentalist Frank Bretschneider, works surprisingly well on "Reanimix." Not to be missed.
