Biography

Brazilian-born Amon Tobin first emerged between 1994-1995 with a string of 12" singles on a small London-based record label called 9Bar Records. The album that followed, "Adventures In Foam", paved the way for a whole generation of electronic productions and prompted his signing to the prodigious Ninja Tune in 1996. He has since gone on to record seven critically-acclaimed ... Read more in Amazon's Amon Tobin Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps you've not heard yet.... August 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you've perchance stumbled across this page and haven't heard this CD, its actually much more of an improvement for the world than sliced bread.....
Amon Tobin and his Ninja Tune labelmates have reinvigorated not just the electronic scence/sound, but are pushing ahead jazz-- which is a move that no one would think could happen. Tobin samples from among the widest spectrum of sources that any compositional artist has, and then combines this with occasionally pounding but occasionally subtle backbeats that results in a music that is both human and non-human, live and contrived....
Just do yourself a favor and buy this CD-- and all of his others (including Adventures in Foam-- recorded under the name Cujo). Honestly, I wonder if anyone has ever listened to Tobin and not thought him brilliant?

5.0 out of 5 stars AMON TOBIN: Hard Sequencer Swing April 29, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Rarely does an album come along that breaks new boundries and pushes the envelope. The first time I heard this album I was for lack of a better word I was speachless. Truely beatiful textures and tones are only complimented by the hard breaks and inovative drum work. In reading some interviews I learned that all this album was made with Qbase on an old mac and a sampler. The planing and time this must of took blows my mind. So many time in the recently developed and some what pretensious DJ scene, one must listen to album after album to find any thing original and fresh. I was quite inspired to hear Amon Tobins album. Bricolage is evedince that music will still continue to evolve and progress as an artform. The technology and talent equation sometime is often subtracted by hype and divided by ego. I am glad to see that a few individuals are still able to equate technology+talent to = music.

5.0 out of 5 stars soulful electronic engineering January 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Who said that electronic sampled music couldn't have soul? I suppose I should describe how I got hooked onto Amon Tobin's work. Oddly enough, I listened to the Amon Tobin collection in reverse (Supermodified, Permutation, Adventures In Foam, Bricolage, respectively) While Bricolage doesnt quite match the mixing and production of Supermodified, the hybrid flowing rhythm and layered beats are just unparalleled.
Jazz, Rock, Electronic, Dance, Jungle, Ambient. It's honestly way too many influences to be classifiable and that's a tribute to Tobin's unique style. Music at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Everyone Should Listen to. May 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Some people may brand him as electronic, but I have to thoroughly disagree. Have you ever wondered what it was like to watch a movie completely visualized in your head by means of musical influence? This, and most other works by him will do the trick. There are so many sounds and emotions going on that you can picture a scene for every song. It's not just a composition, its a visualization. The intensity levels can peak to a point you wouldn't think could be reached by music. The way he explodes the combinations into a structurally accurate form amazes me. He fuses Jazz with Drum and Bass with Ambience with Jungle with just plain creepy noises, and it feels as though you are somewhere. Being a musician, I have a deep respect for music that takes you somewhere just through your ear drums. This does the trick. This creation in particular has a lot of creepy, desolate, isolated sounds pouring through your speakers while at the same time exploding with some form of insane serenity. You can't classify this guy, he is all over the place. If you are for anything vocal, he is not for you. BUT, if you are into instrumentals, much like I am, and ORIGINAL sounding instrumentals, this is perfect. The spectrum of music is displayed within this work of art. It's not just music, its art. Its a display of what you can do musically if you really sit down and THINK about it. Listening to it leaves me speechless. It's truly a vacation in musical format, and I highly reccomend it. If you don't at least ive it a shot, I think you are missing out on a potentially epic piece of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It October 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
As someone who craves vocal-free electronica,

I'm so glad to have finally discovered the works of

Amon Tobin. So far I've heard Supermodied, Permutation

and Bricolage. All three of these CDs are different in style,

all three are excellent and all three are vocal free!

What a great discovery for me! Supermodied is the most

stark and science-fiction/ambient; Permutation is the most

jazzy; and Bricolage is the most melodic and worldly.

Since no track programming is needed, I like putting all three

CDs in the machine at once, on "random play," then all three

CDs compliment one another extremely well. Hmmmm guess I'll have

to try the "live" CD next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pick of the litter... September 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Definitley my favortite Amon Tobin record of all time. There's just something completely unique about it that sets it apart from the rest of his work. And I know that every album of his is a little different from the next, but this one seems to grip me more each time I listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Drum and Bass you'll find March 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I love this guy, but I find his later work kind of fatiguing. His music is so brilliant and amazing that sometimes I have a bit of trouble taking it all the way through (laughs). I found his debut, Bricolage, fantastic. While it may not be as brilliant in other senses, this is the best form of the drum and bass sound. It doesn't have the mindless repitition of it, but still has those rhythms that I love about D and B. He does go to other beats as well to, but a lot of chaotic drums are intact that go like ________ peanut butter and jelly over everything else. On top of that, when you add Tobin's still great use of, uh, everything else he sticks on top of the rhythms, this is why Bricolage is so great when I give it a whirl.

Song wise? Wow, where to start. Stoney Street features jazzy rhythms and samples, and you can just visualize a dark city, or maybe a light city, or maybe a city through the eyes of a drunk. Easy Muffin has brilliantly soothing electronic warmth that reminds me of Autechre (like Amber), and of course, the drums. Yasawas starts with single chimes, and builds with a throbbing bassline, cool textures, and looping breakbeats vs. Drum and Bass. Creatures is another delicious drum groove with ether sounds and creepy noises. A great ode to the creatures of the night. Chomp Samba is a drum and bass tour de force. There's a groove of jungle dense drums right after thumps of percussion, and it fills with dark, dark, dark ambiance.

The New York Editor impresses with a unexplainable pulse of a beat, a jazzy shuffle. I won't get started on why Defocus is bad@$$, but take the title of the song into context. Bitter and Twisted? Wires and Snakes? Listen to those tracks and their drums.
