AMON TOBIN 'No one evolves sound quite like Amon Tobin. On 'Fear in a Handful of Dust' you can almost imagine him examining and polishing each sound he uses, like a jeweller inspecting his gems through an eyepiece, before placing them back into the mix in just the right place to create a sonic experience of captivating abstracted beauty. TWO FINGERS, STUNT RHYTHMS This is an album that attacks you with a cosh

Tobin's instinct for jazz phrasing in a drum'n'bass context is what made his previous Adventures in Foam stand out, and here he lets up on nothing, with walking basslines and dizzying keyboard glissandos bubbling out of a soup of noisy chaos and rip-roaring amen beats.

This is a really amazing, creative and well produced record - and also my introduction to Amon Tobin in 1996 when it was released. I bought the 12" based on the Ninja Tune company sleeve alone expecting the downtempo flavor Ninja was known for at that time. I was also fully immersed in the jungle sounds of labels like Metalheadz and Good Looking. I was about to get a huge surprise that would change my perception of music. This record combined everything I loved about downtempo and jungle and put it through an absolutely twisted lens to achieve some amazing results. This guy is an absolute master of the sampler and draws on Brazilian vibes to create something truly unique. Tons of expert amen editing, big upright basses, plus some dark side Reece action, then flip for 2 flavors of downtempo (including some really tripped-out vibes with with Defocus) really ahead of its time. I had a couple of Photek records, some TPower, and those were the closest I could compare this to at the time, but it's really way in a different league. The flip goes into almost DJ Shadow territory, but I can't remember which I heard first. It was all happening right around that same time. Of course, the man would go on to produce some legendary records from here on with Ninja Tune but this first one changed a lot of things for me. Essential.
