Meat Beat Manifesto - Subliminal Sandwich

Recommended Posts

who ?

just kidding. that'd be sweet too.

tbh. the whole thought of there even being a blade runner 2 is kind of scary so i'd rather just not think about these things ..

I've got a spoiler from the script for the second film.

 

 

han solo dies

 

 

Also, vangellis first, ask questions later. Be fun to guess at the variance in the quality drop between the score and the film, who will have sunk further.

I saw MBM play in Austin in the 90's; one of my first electronic shows.

But if later doesn't happen then I'll never get to regret not listening to it (yet)

literally every track is a killer... SERIOUSLY. Utterer. Amazing. Electric People. Mind-Bending. Assassinator. DUBBY. Lucid Dream. You can experience anything you ever dreamed of.

I wouldn't say they're all -killer- but they're all at least good, and, yes, all the ones you mentioned are killer.

 

It's dense, reveals new details on every listen (even 20 years later), full of tons of juiciness of all varieties (chords, bass, beats, vocals, weird obscure samples and instruments, and general cold war paranoia) and is as cohesive as FUCK which to pull off in a 2 disc set is unheard of.

 

It's not alien, exactly, but it was definitely brought to our world from a parallel universe.

Dr Lopez in honour of your enthusiasm for this album I'm going to make a concerted effort to check it out later today. Truth be told I don't know much about MBM.

i hope you enjoy it my man. goofy samples, intricate beats, dubby basslines, incredibly impressive analog synth work, ambient soundscapes - it's got it all

If anyone wants to know the right way to make modular sequencer music, there's plenty to be learnt from disc 2.

Got up to track 22 Stereophrenic. Pretty darn heavy isn't it? Definitely not light and fluffy. Which is perfectly fine by me. Really liked the vocal elements (whether sung or sampled). A lot to take in on first listen but I really enjoyed it. A lot.

 

Excellent thread. I wish I could start drunken threads as cool as this :wink:

Sterophrenic is my favorite track on the album. I could write on and on about this genius work of music!! Take the length and booming, repetitive abstract rhythms of basic channel, the nostalgic and creepy analog synths of geogaddi, and the mid-century drug paranoia samples of orblivion and you have stereophrenic..... except that it pre-dates most all of that!! lol.

 

the world is your kaleidoscope....

Does anyone know what the voice tube thing is Jack sings into to create those chorus melodies? I've seen him use it on stage several times.

Haven't seen/heard the track you're mentioning but from the wording I'm guessing a Talkbox ?

I was wondering if it was the old Frampton talk box, then he's running it thru something, the vocal effect is prevalent on several MBM tracks, most notably Prime Audio Dub, but I can't find a stream of that track for the life of me online. Great remix though.

I think its a vocoder. He's got a big vintage modular.

I should re-visit Sub Sammich, always loved MBM, they were kinda my gateway into IDM.

I did re-visit RUOK? again lately, always felt that one was underrated in the whole discography there's some fantastic stuff going on on that album.

He does use a vocoder but that's usually a mic right? This was a tube in his mouth so probly talk box. I wish he still did more vocal tracks.

Love Jack Dangers. Subliminal Sandwich just kills. My favorite album from MBM would be RUOK

the first half of RUOK is incredible... after intermission it kind of falls flat for me which is sad cause the flow and build from yuri- spinning round - horns of jericho - what does it all mean is just flawless.

you cannot call yourself an IDM fan if you haven't listened to the utterer. it's just that simple
