Splendid Beats Music and Thoughts by Crispy / Leave Trace
Categories: Cool Hunting

Amon Tobin posted his new album, ISAM, in its entirety for your streaming pleasure. It’s a departure from the jazz-infused broken beats that he became famous for, but it retains and showcases his meticulous sound-design chops. It all sounds lovely to my ears—with equal parts of melody, crunchy bits, and ambient atmosphere—and I can’t wait to dive deeper with repeat listens. Check out the excellent write-up on Create Digital Music, which contains much more info about the album, including some making-of videos.

How pleasant to see ISAM mentioned on your site! I love all Amon Tobin has to offer – including friendliness when face-to-face with fans.

@Diana Lili Meszaros, This album kicks serious booty. Despite recent new releases from Ott, Phutureprimitive and Younger Brother, it easily has taken the crown for best release of 2011 (so far).

I too am impressed. Bought the version with the book because they go so well together. It’s a step away from his more club-like work, but a step towards totally mind-blowing sonic adventurism.
