  • Electronic music 
  • Minimalism

Comment: Mammoth is an extinct animal but The Fucked Up Beat has its mission to continue. The duo of Eddie Palmer & Brett Zehner continues to convey sample-based music which consists of very old samples being intermingled with modern electronic music (which also might be sampled). Mammoth is their second issue in 2016 (a follow-up to Researches Ghostwaves and the Midnight Mysteries of Rhode Island) consisting of one immense, 48-minute composition. The favourite element of the duo’s music is related to iterative, minimal phrases which are wrapped up by haunting ambience. The aforementioned elements do vary throughout the course by changing its shape and timbre, its colour and rhythm and thereof resulting in a multitude of subversions. Thanks to the Caretaker the hauntology used to rule in the underground music and The Fucked Up Beat is one of the most pre-eminent examples of the style worldwide. Undoubtedly it deserves a place in charts of the best albums in 2016.
