Amon Tobin 'Surge' remixes EP early release
Amon Tobin is performing his all new, highly ambitious, breathtaking ISAM live show to a sold-out audience at The Roundhouse in London on Friday. Stepping away from previous DJ-centric performances, Tobin is providing a large scale live audio/visual experience featuring a stunning 25' x 14' x 8' multi-dimensional/ shape shifting 3-D art installation.
To mark this momentous occasion Ninja Tune is making Amon Tobin's new Surge remixes EP available to download TODAY, with the 12" out on 11 July. "Surge" is one of the short, sweet, standout moments of his latest album ISAM. Beautiful and mournful, it sounds a little like two lovers being strafed with dark matter.
Remixes come from Amon Tobin himself, who in his Two Fingers guise ups the beats and the sub-bass for a satisfyingly heavy experience. Labelmate Emika, a long-time admirer of Amon’s work, reinvents the tune as a fragile, almost churchlike experience, her Czech singing delicate but strangely powerful. Emika's version is available for free at emika.co.uk when you sign up to the Emika mailing list. 16bit take up the last place on the EP turning in a raw, bass-heavy dubstepper which takes us a long way from where we started but in a very satisfying way!
