Om Amon Tobin
In the attention-getting style of Ninja Tune labelmates Funki Porcini and the Herbaliser, Amon Tobin mixes chunky beats in bass-driven atmospheres thickened with melodic elements of Ambient, Funk and Dub. Injecting gelatinous doses of blues and jazz effects into gloomy, hip-hop-oriented Drum 'n' Bass and Trip-Hop concoctions, this Brazil native, based in Brighton, brings a clouded world traveler's vision to your speakers. Encasing bitter grooves in Hitchcock-style cinematic synths, Tobin's textured atmospheres buff out gritty breakbeats like fog over rusted remains of a shipwreck. Hearty head-bobbing grooves brewed steadily for late night socializing.
