Album Description

Classic Motown hits from the original master tapes: chopped, screwed, mangled, pureed and soothed.

The follow up to the international sensation, Motown Meltdown, is here! Spurred on by popular demand, the brain trust at Gigante Sound proudly brings you Motown Meltdown: Volume 2 ! The deadly duo of Blanketship and Qulfus have now opened their vault of Motown karaoke and original multi-track recordings to other artists. Alongside our two tunesmiths, featured on this release are: mashup maniac Rokhausen, electro -chemist Vytear, dub maestro Lord Tang, and Gigante Sound's own T H E M A Y S and Beaks Plinth. Volume 2 brings you a wider spectrum of sounds than the first volume, it's wilder,
woolier and weirder than ever before!The Motown Meltdown series is born from a special collection of discs called the Motown Master Recordings Karaoke by Singing Machine. Each of these extraordinary discs contains "8 classic hits by the original artists". These are the ORIGINAL classic Motown recordings with separated stereo channels, left and right. The left side; the instrumental, the right; isolated vocals. And thanks to the internet and a socially irresponsible record label intern, for Volume 2 we have added some of the original Motown multi-track sessions to the sample library! There is one basic ground rule for the making of these songs; the only sources the artists are allowed to utilize are those of the karaoke collections and multi-track sessions. No outside sounds allowed. In other words, no other drum beats, basslines, keys etc. can be added into the mix.Due to their blatant skirting of all modern copyright laws these Meltdowns are also completely unreleaseable in the commercial marketplace! So we have gone the route of "The Grey Album" and "Pet Sounds: In the Key of Dee" and unleashed them as viruses on the world, absolutely free. So, sit back and enjoy our skewed take on the greatest Motown singles of the 20th Century!
