Amon Tobin Anyone?

I think the guy is deaf :blink:

 

or maybe he takes some weird illegal substance that makes it impossible to make distinctions between opposites, sort of taking away any essence , in a nihilistic buddist way ?

^ NOT comparable at all!

 

Do you really know what you're talking about? Not trying to diss this time, Amon Tobin and these artists are just not comparable at all...

 

What, all the breakcore of amon tobin can easily be classified into the same breakcore venetian snares doo.

euh the flashbulb( red extension of me_

Amon tobin more lounge style can look a LOT like kettel album such as whisper me wishes, couple songs of cenny crush or wisp releases such as frozen dreams EP

 

Blackfilm look a lot like amon tobin.

In specific, amon'S tobin work is really distinguish, he as a particular sounds, like i've said. But hes no alone into his experimental with the possibilities of mixing jazz and electronic together, or mixing electronic with industrial or whatever. Just amorphous androgynous as enough ressemblance with amon tobin'S kinda of stuff. I hope you know what i mean. Quality of sounds, sample and all is excellent from Amon : but i find that they are other artist, experimenting, and coming up with better stuff, thats all.

 

to be honest with you, i find some Amon tobins work really good, but for some reason, im not amazed, his songs are imo too repetitive, sorry maybe exagerating when i said amon is not originl, he is, but too often, after a couple of songs, im really like okay, thats was good, but i want to listen to something else. But i didnt listen to everything from him, ive listen to bricolage, foley room and supermodified

Dude, all you needed to say is that you don't like his stuff, but what you did was bring up alot of comparisons to artists that are no way similar to Amon Tobin. Seriously, I don't think Amon Tobin's jazzy breaks is no way near Kettel or Venetian Snares. Some other Ninja Tune artists may be the closest, but Amon Tobin is one of a kind even if you don't want to admit it :D

he reminds me of radi ..

Same here.

 

 

 

Anyway, Amon Tobin is like a tingling on your brain while Venetian Snares is like a fucking smashing rhino on your brain. Way different sounds as far as I'm concerned.

Murphy, I'm sorry if you don't see it this way, but in our most humble opinions, Amon Tobin is an innovative artist, someone who mixed genres and created a whole new style that hadn't existed before him. Dig? Sure you can compare certain elements of his music to other artists, but his music as a whole cannot be adequately compared to any one artist that I know off, and certainly not to those that you mentioned.

 

I mean, Venetian Snares? Come on... breakcore / drill 'n bass or whatever is very hard to compare to the funky, jazzy, sampled, cut up and broken beats that are Amon Tobin's trademark.

 

If you can give me a youtube link to a song of one of the artists you mentioned, and compare that to an Amon Tobin song, I'm willing to follow where you're headed... but otherwise I have to give you the disadvantage of the doubt...

 

Now back ON TOPIC!

 

Cujo - Adventures in Foam. Wow! Excellent album that I only recently discovered, and I'm in love with it. Very most excellent stuff. :) Is there anything along those veins that anyone can recommend me? Not necessarily Tobin himself.

Flashbulb track was released in 2004 and easy muffin back in 1997. Wisp track in 2003 and dream Sequence since its from the same album as easy muffin@Bricolage also in 1997.

All the artists that you mention are Amon's grandchildren, get it?? :angry:

Oh yes, brilliant album, so trippy... I wouldn't know anything to recommend in that vein right now, that is how it is original. :D

...and what I actually got from your posts was that you thought Amon Tobin was ripping everyone off and had no originality and was mediocre that no one should listen to his music. Of course artists use same elements, some by mistake and some intentionally, it's the end result that counts :)
