The Talvin

The Talvin (after Talvin Singh): the unit used to measure your sudden irritation at the entrance of a very fast, fanatically-precise, and neurotically-complex artificial drum track — whose only use seems to be to draw attention to itself and its virtuosity — over a beautiful flowing melody or song that's already full of rhythmic invention and surprise.
