Solid Steel Present Amon Tobin: Recorded Live

The fourth instalment of the highly acclaimed Solid Steel series (which has previously put on display the DJing skill of Mr Scruff, DJ Food & DK and Hexstatic) makes a welcome return with a live mix from Amon Tobin.

Recorded in Melbourne in December 2003 (every night of Tobin’s Australian tour was recorded and this was deemed the best) the mix was created using Final Scratch, a software and hardware bundle allows the user to mix two specially timecoded records on turntables in the normal way while actually triggering music files on a computer (sorry if that makes no sense!). The end result is a mix where there are very few points where just one track is playing and bits of music have been fucked with on the fly, giving the energy and unpredictability of a more traditional live performance.

The mix takes in all of Amon Tobin’s influences and passions with drum n bass, heavy beats, downtempo and even some Velvet Underground (if you were present at the recording you would also have heard some Destiny’s Child but they wouldn’t give clearance for this release).

If all this technical talk and listing of dance sub-genres leaves you slightly perplexed, you need only know this: This is one the finest DJ mixes on the market and you should own it.
