Two Fingers are Brazilian beat adventurer pioneer Amon Tobin and Joe "Doubleclick"
Chapman. The pair met when Tobin lived in Brighton and bonded over an interest in music
that ran way beyond the boundaries of electronica. Together in Montreal, they applied
production techniques associated with UK styles such as drum & bass to the template of
hip hop. Sway (UK Mobo winning artist) was so taken with what they were doing, he flew
straight out to Montreal and recorded seven tracks with them. Sway demonstrated his
open-mindedness, a lesser man might have been scared by the distinctiveness of the
music, but he embraced it. The remaining rhythms were voiced by sometime Missy protégé
Ms Jade and dancehall legend Ce'Cile.
The result is a project unlike anything that any of the three main players has ever made
before. It is a unique, utterly uncompromising, brutal and beautiful record that could
only have grown out of the UK and the internationalism of those involved. Due for release
April 14th 2009, the LP "Two Fingers" is set to be one of the records of the year.
