Various Artists Solid Steel Presents Amon Tobin Live
- Words: Tyra Bangs
- Label: Ninja Tune
This Final Scratch DJ set by Amon Tobin contains tons of drums: heavy jungle kicks, skittering, jazz-inspired snares and bass that woozily expands and contracts as if in a nitrous daydream. Tobin fans will delight-the mix contains a fair amount of his moody, cut-up breaks-and new listeners will be amazed by this Ninja Tune stalwart's DJ virtuosity. Tobin's at his best when he effortlessly segues between experimental breakbeat, shuffling downtempo, and minimal drum & bass without missing a beat; he tosses in tracks from Facs & Scythe, T Power and Dizzee Rascal before ending with a haunting version of The Velvet Underground's smoky classic "Venus In Furs."
