Mix Master Mike Bangzilla
- Words: Aqua Boogie
- Label: Immortal
On Bangzilla, Invisibl Skratch Pickl and Beastie Boys DJ Mix Master Mike forgoes any middlemen with mics to deliver another album geared strictly for scratch aficionados. Without a rhyme in sight, those ignorant to the turntablism lexicon will have trouble deciphering the frenetic beats encrypted amidst chops, flares and stabs. All sounds are fair game; whether it's nursery rhymes ("Tranzmission"), string arrangements ("Bangzilla") or spacey effect ("Skanner 13"), they all get manhandled over an endless stream of sturdy drum breaks. At times the cacophony of sound can get monotonous, but MMM is a vinyl-chewing beast that must be heard to be believed.
