FTRK #1 = "Esther's" by Amon Tobin

Esther's - Amon Tobin (2007) (Download .mp3)

My brother introduced me to Amon Tobin about 2 months ago while I was meandering through his music library. He was quite new to music, really, having about 12 artists in his library... but what a gem was it to find this! Esther's is a track from "The Foley Room", and consists of samples taken from motor bike growls, among many other noises collected outside the studio. A piano begins to play a chorus, following an engine starting. Steam, pumping, throttle, and the chorus seems to be drowning with its wavering sound. And the engine returns witha shot of nitrous.

Official Video by Charles De Meyer, 2010.
