Xploding Plastix

orchestral jazz // spy music // idm

Layers upon layers of sound that whooshing by you in a sonic fury. Norway’s Xploding Plastix erupted in their country’s impressive music scene with their debut, Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents and earned themselves a Grammy for best electronica record. Their music is like James Bond lounge-jazz meets Amon Tobin; Henry Mancini vs. Squarepusher. Their blow-you-away website has all their music available, in high fidelity audio.
A triplage of gorgeous music, today, for you to indulge in.

    unreal!! just when you think that no one could touch the cinematic orchestra in feel and depth, there ya go. some of the richest music i have heard in..well, a long time. so good i had to post a comment form my lazy ass. DRONE (seattle)

    That’s absolutely what I had been thinking. They’re both so damn talented. My mind has a hard enough time tracking all the sounds hitting me — I can’t imagine creating it. I’m looking forward to TCO’s new album, whenever it comes out.
    Also, is it just me or does the Tom Tyler Remix of Channel 1 Suite REALLY need a remix with Roots Manuva rapping on top? That’d be incredibly hot.

    Strange how you can wait monthes and monthes waiting for real good surprises… This is a rare one.
    Big discovery !

    I didn’t consider sampling an art until I heard these guys. The jazz drum samples are used to create such complex rhythms its fascinating. Also very refreshing to hear stand up bass sampled as a main bassline. Very different, very cool.

    Incredible sound !
    Thanks a lot for this ! I was just beginning to feel a bit cynical with all this new music coming to me through mp3 blogs but not really touching me … and there you go …

    Thanks for this post – Their album has gone to the top of my “Wanted” list – great music + the fact they have Sarah Cracknell(from one of my favourites bands Saint Etienne)featured on a track has sealed it!!.

    excellent discovery, once again.
