Renowned Brazilian producer Amon Tobin has revived his Two Fingers project.
For those who don’t know Amon Tobin, the Brazilian musician has solidified a reputation as one of the most eccentric adventurers in electronic music. Tobin has lent his music to a number of acclaimed films, such as Italian Job and 21, and produced scores for video games such as Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Infamous.
He’s also released music under a number of names, including Cujo, Only Child Tyrant, Amon Tobin as well as Two Fingers, the latter of which has spawned a new 2020 album.
Fight! Fight! Fight! is a gritty drum & bass record that would feel right at home as a soundtrack to a sci-fi thriller. While the record feeds off the scorching bass that underpins it there are some really dextrous samples and explorations here. ‘You Ain’t Down’ catapults of industrial tendencies and a minimalist Hindi-like jitter to embody an EDM track that would fill up any malleable nightclub.
‘Nuff Swizz Rhythm’ would be the perfect addition to your running playlist – like pistons pumping at full speed, the beat grits its teeth and pounds along the pavement like a marathon runner entering their final stretch.
Fight! Fight! Fight! will be a novel listening experience for many not ordinarily invested in drum & bass music but if there was ever an album perfectly placed to introduce you to the genre, this would be it.
