REMIXING CLASSICS: AMON TOBIN – 4 TON MANTIS (CHRISTINE SCRATCH LIVE REMIX)
Normandy French duo She Is Christine remix one of my favourite Amon Tobin tracks, the bass heavy but kind of trip hop 4 Ton Mantis. They bring out the menace inherent in the original and add a bit of modern electro and some scratching. This is quality stuff. No wonder they get comparisons to Justice and Bloody Beetroots. Free download.
Since that was good, let’s check out their just released Fucking Youth EP. The title track (which obv has a sample saying ‘fucking youth’) is a big room electro house track (banger, if you must) with the mandatory bass distortion. Of its type it’s very good and will be devastating in a club but I’m just done with that sound. They should get some Calvados and chill out.
Blurb: Killer sharp-rhythmed electronic sounds offered by two artists from Normandy. With Christine, you jump into a grinder of rock, disco, funk, hip hop and even classical music. Kinetic, devastating electro that knows no limits. Palpitations and cramps guaranteed.
