Fatboy Slim Remixes Raymond Scott – Machines Can Do The Work

Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook) has released five new tracks that he created using loops taken from Raymond Scott’s electronic soundtrack for the 1967 film, The Paperwork Explosion (directed by Jim Henson!).

The reworkings are available on two new EPs, which are collaborations with UK-based DJ/producer Hervé, are titled Machines Can Do The Work and Machines Can Do The Work: Remixed.

Here’s Scott’s original pionering soundtrack work in its original context:

  1. Re the "Please ditch that "Comment before somebody else does!"

    I'm taking suggestions.

    It has to be better than "Comment" or "Click here to comment", though.

  2. WizzBoy – will do what I can on the epic beats.

    Sometimes, though, it seems like the epic beats aren't as easy to come by as they used to be.

  3. Presumably I'm the only one here old enough to consider that this "epic beat" was probably no more than an afternoon's work, work, work, work. Personally, I find it annoyingly repetitive, repetitive, repetitive, repetitive.

  4. I'm still waiting for that "epic" part to kick in… nope, still not feeling it…

    It sure would be nice if people did think… certainly not "what they're good at", but it would still be nice if they did. Instead we have a planet overpopulated with brain-dead idiots, content to wallow in their ignorance and let a few self-serving demagogues tell them what believe.

    Then again, critical thinking might have ankled this track before release… and then we'd have nothing to talk about.
