It actually was listed here but due to e-mail from his label admins had to remove it (and some others). But you still can find it on archive.org
P_Hangman: agreed. I've been curious about "Natureland" for a while (and was a little surprised that it's not listed on here). Such a beautiful song...I'm curious about the songs that he manipulated to create it.
...we need to do dig into this guy a little more. i don't how tracks like Natureland or Nova, completely based around distinctive samples, cannot be identified... i mean the sources. Bossa Nova, cool jazz, i don't know.
Hey there! Does anybody know what song he's sampling in the beginning of the song Always?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njH6EIgikAc
Like Regular Chickens samples the movie Eraserhead.Eraserhead-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQD0VfkYDW0Sample starts at 0:26.Like Regular Chickens-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwA0jTXVq44Sample starts at 2:46.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giO0lX2_iNMAnd this track has the same main sample as Cosmo Retro Intro Outro.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXjtvEwH9egThe break that drops at 0:37 is the same one he used in "Sordid." Can't find where the original is from though.Agreed on the "Battery" samples. Doubt we'll ever find them, but it sounds like he layered some strings with Hindi vocals from some Bollywood soundtrack and filtered them together to make that whining ghost cry... or whatever you wanna call it. ;)
What are the samples on the Permutations track "Bridge"?Buddy Rich, Krupa????Caravan???TIApalnudb
damn that was fast :O
Shouldn't Cujo be listed as an alias?
If any of you guys can find stuff in "Theme From Battery" from the Chaos Theory soundtrack, I'd be eternally indebted. This is a song that drove me to years during multiple listens. :)
I never realized how much the Splinter Cell soundtrack took cues from John Cage. I think I found a couple samples from Cage records today in fact, I'll check em in a bit.
To me the sample that comes late in "Toys" sounds very Snow White-ish. Couldn't pin a specific track or sound though.
re: nick cave = anvil, i think you're right... if the source can be trusted and he did in fact sample nick cave... because there's definitely a xylophone hit on the tobin track that isn't on the nick cave track.
EDIT: Ignore the post-script, already up
Have already had a look actually, but the only one I got pending in fact Red Right Hand that you mention, surely it's the first few seconds of Nick Cave dropped in at about 0:09 on The Anvil Track... we'll see cos it's waiting for approval. Most of the rest is difficult work - he hides his samples so effectively with other layers and heavy processing. Put in the stuff about Cujo on his page myself, any help would be appreciated, must admit that the I couldn't fathom were from Theme From The Exodus could have been used, though I found a version by Jorge Morel, which I though was a little warmer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvtAlXAAbK4) ... the Cujo stuff should be a little easier to be honest, much more transparent in his sampling on those daysI looked for but couldn't find or be sure about Watermelon Man or the Corcovado [Quiet Nights] samples'PS. Oh and the only one I'd deduced myself - haven't investigated it yet but Four Tonne Mantis, surely, drops us in at the deep end with a snippet from the 'Alton Towers' song (sorry, don't know what it isactually called yet, will have a look around later)
does anybody else want to try and place some of these?:http://soundstatements.blogspot.com/2009/02/amon-tobin-original-samples.htmli've submitted all the ones i could find. i have no idea about the nick cave one for instance.
I know, I know - I'm surprised how little representation lots of Electronic musicians have to put up with :P, this is coming from a Hip-Hop fan. Will have to make a concerted effort with some, but it is difficult work so much of the time. Basically I'm not worthy...Either way massive love goes out to Amon Tobin, one of this era's greatest musicians, absolutely no doubt!
i don't think that's the issue so much as how "supermodified" the samples he uses are...
I agree man. I guess a lot of his samples are from much older classical music ranging back to the early 1900s, as well as obscure Brazilian jazz that would be extremely hard to find, or even stumble upon.
why aren't there people obsessing about deconstructing this stuff they way they do over dj shadow or j dilla?
