Join us for a very special pre-release premiere of Amon Tobin’s new album, plus a Q&A with the artist himself.

On April 26, electronic music pioneer Amon Tobin will release ‘Fear in a Handful of Dust’ - his first album in eight years since his triumphant ‘ISAM’. Amon Tobin’s role in electronic music innovation cannot be understated. In a career spanning over 20 years, the Brazilian-born UK-raised producer has released of some of the most important, era-defining records of his time, setting a pace of sonic exploration and musical adventurism that has helped to shape much of what has come since.

His last album ISAM utilised advanced synthesis processing and production techniques traditionally reserved for sound design in film, and paved the way for a radically new kind of audiovisual performance. Pioneering the use of projection mapping in a live performance context, the landmark ISAM shows were hailed by major media outlets including Wired, Rolling Stone, NPR, and were premiered at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, from the Sydney Opera House to the Olympia in Paris to the London Hammersmith, and many international festivals including Sonar, MUTEK and Moogfest.

The depth and scope of Amon Tobin's work is a major inspiration to many. From the Kronos Quartet to Diplo, he has achieved respect among artists within and outside electronic music. He established a reputation for musical ingenuity unconfined by genre, and over two decades remains one of the most visionary electronic artists of his generation.
