Hot off the heels of the sold-out North American ISAM tour, we offer you some special limited bundles as a token of memory. Go to the store to see them now: http://amontobin.com/store

We feature two styles of t-shirts, both based on the actual design of the ISAM stage setup by Heather Shaw - to the vector!

The Deluxe Bundle includes both styles of T-shirts, ISAM 2LP and Surge EP vinyls, and the ISAM Limited Edition Artbook featuring images by Tessa Farmer: Get it Now

Each bundle comes with a behind-the-scenes featurette of ISAM Live featuring never-before seen footage, a photo album of on-the-road pics taken by Amon and the crew, a poster with all the dates listed, and a totebag to carry it all. Digital companions to physical media are available for immediate download in the format of your choice - from mp3 to lossless .wav

If you were there and missed it, or if you missed it and wished you were there - these bundles provide a perfect memento. 

Our store allows for gifting - give the gift of Amon for the holidays! Just select "this purchase is a gift" when buying.

For the little ones, Amon Tobin Onesies are available for 3-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months! Amon for the whole family!

Our stock is VERY limited - as these were made for the tour, there will not be a re-pressing. Do make haste and get yours today for you and your loved ones.

 

Cheers,

ATHQ

Beck commissions Amon for Philip glass remix project:

Some of the world's best electronic musicians are to celebrate composer Philip Glass's 75th birthday on a new remix album.

Produced by Beck, the compilation will reportedly include contributions from Tim Hecker, Memory Tapes, Amon Tobin, Cornelius, and former Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton

 

The biggest tour story of fall 2011 is definitely Amon Tobin’s ISAM: Live. The first time in the artist’s history that he's presented his music in a cutting-edge visual format is taking North America by storm. By far the hottest ticket on the concert circuit, ALL DATES are completely sold out and at a record pace. The tour's ambitious nature and stunning presentation has been already been toasted by everyone from Billboard, Wired, Fast Company, Wall Street Journal, Flaunt, LA Times, URB, Time Out New York, Filter... don’t take it from us, though!

 

“Nothing less than awe-inspiring” -Billboard

“The concert of the future, today” -Gizmodo

"ISAM's live show looks like a mindf*&k of the highest order." –Wired

"Isam is Amon Tobin’s Metropolis, his Koyaanisqatsi." -CitySound

"One of the most exciting live shows I've seen this year. " -OC Weekly

"Amon Tobin is a groundbreaking performer without contemporaries, complex beyond his inspirations." -Examiner

"It was joyous, unsettling, energizing and, judging from the sweat and writhing, comprehensively thumpadelic." - LA Weekly

“the ISAM Tour is a unique music experience that will most certainly be a creative benchmark in the next generation of live music technology innovation.” -Jambase

"Amon Tobin’s massively ambitious live setup seems to have to be seen to be believed." -The Daily Swarm

“If there was one figure in electronic music whose body of work and industry acclaim beg for superstardom, it’s Tobin” –Denver Post

“It’s not often that a performance by a world-renowned DJ leaves fans speechless instead of sweaty. ” – LA Times

"How do you explain to someone how genius and perfectly expressed a piece of art is unless they’ve had a personal experience with it? You can’t."-URB

“Stop by Tobin’s website or pull up any of the numerous YouTube clips under “ISAM live,” and you’ll see evidence of an eye-popping kinetic spectacle that makes recent outings by Daft Punk, Deadmau5 and Richie Hawtin look like soft-coded light shows” -Time Out New York

“The music on ISAM is a perfect backdrop for the pseudo-holographic quality of the visual show. He, like his Ninja Tune labelmates, is carving out his own niche in electronic music with a NASA-grade sound synthesis that is light-years beyond the untz-untz of electro.” - Boulder Weekly

Due to overwhelming public demand, Ninja Tune and Soundcrash are thrilled to announce a second date for Amon Tobin's 'ISAM: Live' audio/visual show at London's HMV Forum!

Tickets are available now, order here.

The original date (24 November) is now completely sold out.

 

The Creator's Project have created a film around Amon Tobin's ISAM album and the accompanying campaign, looking at all aspects from the album's creation, the art installation 'Control Over Nature' alongside Tessa Farmer, and the incredible 'ISAM Live' audio/visual live show - watch the video at The Creator's Project website.

The film crew flew out to London for a rare and in depth video interview with Amon at the Crypt gallery where the exhibition debuted. They also interviewed collaborating artist Tessa Farmer about her work on the project along with several contributers to the live show as part of the piece.

Amon will bring his 'ISAM: Live' show to the HMV Forum on 24 November, tickets are available here

The track taken from the forthcoming Two Fingers album is fast becoming a bit of a classic. First appearing exclusively in Amon Tobin's DJ sets representing his TF alias, then as the opening track for Ninja's own mighty anniversary compilation and now on this rather prestigious Adidas campaign. Keep your antenna up for news of the full album set for release later this year.
