MP3: Dark Time Sunshine & Two Fingers (Amon Tobin) - "Sweden (Remix)"

Courtesy Audible Treats.

On October 2nd, super producer and composer Amon Tobin released Stunt Rhythms, his second album operating under his Two Fingers alias, via Big Dada/Ninja Tune. Tobin has referred to Stunt Rhythms as his "love letter to hip-hop," and as such, the music throughout the album is the type of drum-heavy, bombastic production that would be ripe for some guest vocals. As it happens, Dark Time Sunshine, who released their own album, ANX, this spring and have been on tour with Aesop Rock since May, felt the same way, and today, the duo's rapper, Onry Ozzborn, is dropping off his own take on the Stunt Rhythms single "Sweden."

The song, premiered by MTV Hive, inspired Onry Ozzborn because of, he says, the track's darkness, and what he calls a "pep rally kind of feel." "It also has great build-ups," he says, alluding to the instrumental's tweaking synth lines, warbled bass, and crashing drums. "My approach to the remix," remarks Ozzborn, " was just to bring alive the words that were already there, but not yet heard." For the concept, says Onry, the goal was to focus on creating something new, to use the instrumental as a launching pad. "I didn't want to be trapped, replicating someone else's work," says Onry. "I wanted to be innovative." .
