An ambitious but rewarding Amon extravaganza
Amon Tobin has spent the past 15 years slowly building his legendary reputation as a bonkers electronic audio-visual pioneer. Like a modern-day Brian Eno with a penchant for drum’n’bass dynamics, the restless rhythms and dreamlike melodies that Tobin laces his tracks with somehow lend themselves equally to classic interpretations, club revamps and film scores. All of these feature on the most comically comprehensive 7CD/2DVD/6 vinyl ‘Boxset’, including remixes from Noisa, 2562, Kwes and some more ‘serious’ musicians you can pretend to recognise. It’s an ambitious but rewarding Amon extravaganza – now where did i put CD 7?
