Release info:
To coincide with Amon Tobin’s 7.1 surround sound headline show at the Kentish Town Forum on November 15th, Ninja Tune is releasing this EP of four superb remixes of “Kitchen Sink,” one of the standouts from Amon’s critically-acclaimed album “Foley Room”.

“Foley Room,” as you may remember, was built solely using found sounds recorded by Tobin and a team of technicians. These sounds were then monkeyed about with to create the kind of audio rush that Tobin is rightly renowned for. The title of “Kitchen Sink” hopefully gives you some clue as to the origins of the noises involved, but now these sources have been farmed out to an intrepid and international band of remxers.

Warp’s Clark (who will also be playing at the Forum show) kicks things off with a mix that can only be described as akin to watching a ballerina rise up out of a music box carrying a chainsaw. Dreamy, childlike, oddly funky and scary. Canadian MC/producer and Ninja-mate Sixtoo gives the original a lacerating acid drive and hypnotic groove. Avant gardists Noisia deconstruct the d&b blueprint, leaving gaps in their rollouts and a fairytale atmosphere beneath pounding drums. Whilst Boxcutter (known to his mum as Barry Lynn) ups the intensity a notch further with a seething, intricately-detailed dub-stepper on which he drops a backward guitar solo during the breakdown.

In other news, The 24-piece Heritage Orchestra will re-imagine 3 tracks from Foley Room for the London Jazz Festival, 3 days after the Forum show.

So there you go. England, Northern Ireland, Canada and Holland. Artists working at the edges of techno, hip hop, drum & bass and dubstep. Everything but the kitchen sink. Plus the “Kitchen Sink”. Spooky.
