If Ninja Tune was entirely in its own music genre (and I'd like to claim that it is), then it would be hard for its roster to compete with its staple artist, Brazilian born Amon Adonai Santos de Aravjo Tobin, who for over a decade has graced our ears with abstract downtempo trip hop and experimental jazzy breaks. Such is the case with Foley Room, an organic and at times dark album, that swirls and loops through filtered sweeps and broken beats. For his sixth release, Tobin abandoned his perfected technique of sampling from dug up vinyl, and built an ambitious collage of field and studio recordings with the help of The Kronos Quartet, Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot) and harpist Sarah Pagé. The elaborately cut up bits and pieces of familiar every day sounds form into an organized chaos of dissonant elastic melodies powdered with bouncy rhythms and dropped into a chamber, which the sound effect designers call "the foley room".
