Amon Tobin - "Four Ton Mantis"

Today we are going to dig the whole last century...are you ready for this?

Starting with one of the most interesting artist of mid-90's, Amon Tobin, and his Four Ton Mantis, included in Supermodified album in the year 2000.

Genius of noise manipulation and uncompromising musical auteur, he took the concept of sampling to a next level: he didn't just sample old song, in his last albums, such as Foley Room(I personally love "Always") and Chaos Teory - Splinter Cell OST, he created song using audio sample of street and mechanical noise.

This song contains a sample taken from the intro part of (Hall of the) Mad Mountain King by Apollo 100, released in 1971.

Apollo 100's track parody a classical song: In the hall of the Mountain King by the norvegian composer Edvard Grieg written 1876.

And, I don't know why but it reminds me the Inspector Gadget cartoon theme! That's sound crazy!
