Amon Tobin Live In London
On the 15th November, Amon Tobin will be returning to London to do a 7.1 Surround Sound Set at Kentish Town Forum. Tobin will be performing a 90 minute DJ set in 7.1 Surround Sound. Unlike conventional DJ sets, his set will focus more on composing new arrangements live on the decks, than on simply matching songs that share a similar bpm. The mixes will be treated more as layers in an arrangement than as transitions between tracks, and the decks will be used more like samplers manipulating sources from vinyl than as turntables. Buy tickets here To coincide with the show Ninja Tune is releasing an EP of four superb remixes of "Kitchen Sink," one of the standouts from Amon's critically-acclaimed album "Foley Room" on the 26th November. Warp's Clark kicks things off with a mix that can only be described as akin to watching a ballerina rise up out of a music box carrying a chainsaw. Canadian MC/producer and Ninja-mate Sixtoo gives the original a lacerating acid drive and hypnotic groove. Avant gardists Noisia deconstruct the d&b blueprint, leaving gaps in their rollouts and a fairytale atmosphere beneath pounding drums. Whilst Boxcutter (known to his mum as Barry Lynn) ups the intensity a notch further with a seething, intricately-detailed dub-stepper on which he drops a backward guitar solo during the breakdown.
