African-American vocalist and digital producer
took the art of sampling to a higher level on
Electric Third Rail (2000), his first collaboration with
beat-maker 4AM (Jason Chavez), and especially
on the mostly instrumental album Audio Noir (2003), on which the pair
augmented trip-hop with techniques borrowed from
musique concrete via Angelo Badalamenti, dada collages via ./vol6/arkane.html>A R Kane, Nine Inch Nail's industrial music and Brian Eno's ambient music.
The only drawback is Marshall's vocals (on four songs).
This vast arsenal of influences showed up again a decade later on
Laws (Mannequin, 2012), another sophisticated essay on
the interplay between abrasive noise and brainy dance, between industrial music and techno music, notably in Liars & Thieves.
