AMON TOBIN

Brazilian-born Amon Tobin first emerged between 1994-1995 with a string of 12" singles on the small London-based record label 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 albums under his own name on Ninja that have since helped define the label as a force in musical innovation and diversity. In addition, Amon has produced a small number of radically diverse original scores ranging from George Palfi's cult cinema oddity Taxidermia to Tom Clancy's video game blockbuster Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.

 

The depth and scope of Amon Tobin's work have had a far-reaching influence. From the Kronos Quartet to Diplo he has garnered respect amongst artists both within and outside electronic music. Amon has established a reputation for musical ingenuity that is unconfined by genre and over a fifteen-year-long career remains among one of the most visionary electronic artists of a generation.

 

The 2007 album Foley Room explored the role of found sound in modern day music. Documented on film, the process of recording minute insects to lions, wolves, engines and foley performances culminated in a much- lauded performance at the birthplace of musique concrete, the GRM Theatre in Paris. More recently, the famed London Metropolitan Orchestra performed selected works from a cross-section of his musical repertoire at the Royal Albert Hall.

 

An Acronym for "Invented Sound Applied to Music", ISAM was an experiment in synthesizing field recordings and transforming them into new physically playable instruments to create unique sound palettes. From Amon's own voice gender-modified to the sound a of a creaking chair mutated into a string ensemble, ISAM directs an academic approach in audio manipulation to a purely emotional musical context. This contrast is central to the album and represents a pivotal moment in Amon's personal musical development. Sound design techniques previously used in film, as pioneered by the likes of Ben Burt (Star Wars, Wall-E) were utilized along side new ones Amon developed specifically for ISAM and applied in an unprecedented approach to music production.

 

In May of 2012, Amon Tobin and Ninja Tune released the Amon Tobin Boxset: a strictly limited edition release and that came in the form of a beautiful high quality bolt fastened mechanical 'press' and included 6 x 10" vinyls, 7 CDs, 2 DVD's and several posters. Most of the material is unreleased, almost none of it has ever been available on a physical format before. It includes new music, unreleased dub plates and a wealth of archive material, Amon Tobin's earliest audio experiments (never been played in public before), film and television score work, unreleased score work, deleted bootlegs, ISAM live show DVD, ISAM live audio album, remixes, cover versions and re-interpretations of the ISAM album, remixes Amon has produced for others, a recording of the (November 2010) Royal Albert Hall orchestrations of Amon Tobin and more.

 

Concurrent to ISAM Live's final run around the globe, in October 2012, Stunt Rhythms, the sophomore release from Amon's beat-orientated alias Two Fingers dropped. A double CD and triple LP release, Stunt Rhythms is as much body-popping beats as it is raw synth energy. The Two Fingers project is in parallel with Amon's more esoteric musical excursions. A furious vent between exploring the outer reaches of sound.

MACHINEDRUM

Born Travis Stewart on March 4th 1982, Machinedrum has produced and composed several albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999. Covering an astonishing variety of styles with ease, he bridges the gap between genres that would not have met otherwise. A true electronic music Renaissance man, Machinedrum blends together current pop music standards and trends with his own extensive knowledge of experimental production techniques, delivering his quality signature on every thing he touches.

 

His debut Now You Know, was released in 2001 on Merck Records and gained worldwide praise from musicians, fans and critics, being heralded as the “standard to which the next wave of imitators aspires” by Pitchfork.com.

 

Having a strong background in both acoustic and electronic instrumentation, he dances between those elements on all his releases. This can be heard in the field recording and vintage synth laden ‘Urban Biology’ to his seminal production and mixing of the ‘This Charming Mixtape’ with Theophilus London. His critically acclaimed 2009 album ‘Want to 1 2?’ was another showcase of his most recent production. In 2010, Machinedrum released ‘Many Faces’ EP on Scottish label LuckyMe.

 

Under the name Sepalcure, he’s also released two EP’s - ‘Love Pressure EP’ and ‘Fleur EP’ - on Hotflushwith friend and collaborator Praveen Sharma - a sound they describe as “an exploration of chopped up 90’s diva house acapellas and wooden sounding snares reminiscent of UK funky and dubstep”. He also saw the EP single release of ‘Let It’, one of the standout songs from his 2009 ‘Want to 1 2?’ album, with upstart label Innovative Leisure. He also wrote the song ‘Outside the Lines’ with Praveen Sharma and recorded it under the name Sepalcure featuring Angelica Bess for the 2010 feature film Black Swan, though it is not featured on the official soundtrack to the film.

JUST BLAZE

Hip-hop would not be where it is today without Just Blaze. Recently his collaboration record with Baauer, ‘Higher’ blew up across the world, but the New Jersey producer has been an firm favorite for hip-hop A-list for over a decade.

 

Over the past 15 years, Just Blaze has become a fixture in Hip Hop music and culture. He began producing for well-known artists in the late 1990s, leading to a breakout role in producing the majority of Jay-Z’s “The Dynasty: Roc La Familia” and his follow-up opus “The Blueprint”. He’s reached international fame for his production of Cam’ron’s 2002 summer smash “Oh Boy”. Since then, he’s gone on to produce for Snoop Dogg, Usher, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Drake, and many more. Between producing five tracks on Eminem’s Grammy-winning comeback album “Recovery”, hosting Viacom’s DJ competition show “Master of the Mix”, upcoming projects with Ludacris, Fabolous, and Jay-Z, Just shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
