- It's A Muthang/ Midnight Mutant by Mika Vainio
1 review. Write a review for us »
Urgh, upsetting artwork! Pan Sonic dude and legend in his own right Mika Vainio's gone kinda hip-hop with this one, applying his ever-impeccable ear for sound design onto a style I can't remember him flirting with too often in the past. The beat on 'It's a Muthang' seems almost like some sort of skewed take on boom-bap while the disorientating tones (I hesitate to call them 'melodies', although they do flirt with fitting that description from time to time) laid on top, seemingly borne of malfunctioning industrial equipment that hasn't been invented yet, make your head feel a bit ruined. Probably the most accessible thing I've heard him do but I'm sure it'll satisfy long-term fans of his style too as it's really pretty excellent! The spacious 'Midnight Mutant' has a (surprise!) more late night feel to it and sounds a bit like what I imagine might result if he set out to do a creepingly sinister Burial-style remix. Two blatant winners out of two!
