The Same Channel is a collaborative album by American musician Fat Jon and Belgian musician Styrofoam.[4] It was released on Morr Music in 2006.[1]

Reception[edit]

Marisa Brown of AllMusic gave the album 4 stars out of 5, calling it "an indie-electronica/hip-hop album that should thrill backpackers who are tired of soul- and funk-based beats and are looking for something fractured and galactic with that sad mechanicality that is a necessary element of any Morr Music release."[1] Steve Marchese of XLR8R described it as "An experimental, courageous, and wildly successful coupling of styles."[4]

Trent Moorman of The Stranger gave the album 3 stars out of 5, commenting that "Fat Jon weighs in like LL Cool J in his prime."[2] Alan Ranta of Tiny Mix Tapes gave the album 3 stars out of 5 and said, "Production wise, Styrofoam's club-friendly, synth-driven electro-pop takes command."[3]
