Amon Tobin marches to no one’s beat but his own. In a career spanning over ten years he has been connected to but never belonged to a host of scenes and styles. He has consistently made the music he feels he needs to make, not what other people think he ought to make, always exhibiting a level of attention to sonic detail which makes his music more intensely textured, beautiful and brutal than almost anyone’s out there.
Make no mistake – “Stunt Rhythms” is about beats and bass. The model for the album comes from “Fools Rhythm” (included here), one of the standout tracks from Ninja’s 20th anniversary “XX” boxset, an infectious mixture of playground melody, sharp beat and thunderous bass.
Uncompromising, muscular and powerful, the music of Two Fingers is also full of subtle touches, humour and a supple sense of rhythm. Which, when you think about it, is just showing off.
