The Incredible Sound Machine is the fifth and final album by old school hip hop/electro funk group Mantronix, and the third Mantronix album released on Capitol Records. The Incredible Sound Machine featured new member, vocalist Jade Trini, who replaced D.J. D. Trini joined rapper Bryce "Luvah" Wilson (who made his debut on Mantronix's previous album, 1990's This Should Move Ya), and founding member, DJ Kurtis Mantronik.

The Incredible Sound Machine was a departure from previous Mantronix albums, in that it favored house music, R&B, and new jack swing over the old school hip hop/electro funk sound for which the group was most famously known.

Shortly after the European tour and promotion related to the release of the album, which was critically panned and commercially disappointing, Mantronix disbanded.[2]
