Two Fingers is the musical alter-ego of Amon Tobin. The first Two Fingers album was a collaboration with fellow producer Doubleclick. The eponymous release came out in 2009 and heavily featured UK vocalist Sway.
The second album, “Stunt Rhythms” was a solo effort by Amon Tobin and was released worldwide by Big Dada in 2012. “Fools Rhythm,” included in Ninja Tune’s 20th anniversary “XX” box set, has proved to be one of the most popular tunes from that collection and Amon’s way with bottom end continues to rearrange internal organs worldwide.
This is a general admission, standing event. Happy hour from 9-10pm including $3 beer and $5 well drinks.
Brazilian-born Amon Tobin first emerged between 1994-1995 with a string of 12” singles on a small London-based record label called 9Bar Records. The album that followed, “Adventures In Foam”, paved the way for a whole generation of electronic productions and prompted his signing to the prodigious Ninja Tune in 1996. He has since gone on to record seven critically-acclaimed albums under his own name on Ninja that have since helped define the label as a force in musical innovation and diversity. In addition, Amon has produced a small number of radically diverse original scores ranging from George Palfi’s cult cinema oddity Taxidermia to Tom Clancy’s video game blockbuster Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
The depth and scope of Amon Tobin’s work has had a far-reaching influence, garnering respect amongst producers and artists both within and outside electronic music. Whether with the classical avant garde Kronos Quartet or D’n’B legends Noisia, or on his own in some invented form, Amon has established a reputation for musical ingenuity that is unconfined by genre. Over a fifteen-year-long career Amon Tobin remains among one of the most visionary electronic artists of a generation.
The 2007 album “Foley Room” explored the role of found sound in modern day music. Documented on film, the process of recording minute insects to lions, wolves, engines and foley performances culminated in a much-lauded performance at the birthplace of musique concrete, the GRM Theatre in Paris. More recently, the famed London Metropolitan Orchestra performed selected works from a cross-section of his musical repertoire at the Royal Albert Hall.
Amon Tobin will release three albums in 2011: a radical new studio album entitled ISAM, a new Two Fingers album, and an album of remixes of his Chaos Theory soundtrack work.
Brendan Angelides is a Los Angeles based electronic music producer who records and performs live as Eskmo. His multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Ninja Tune, Warp Records and Planet Mu. While Angelides’ tracks encompass a wide range of electronic styles, he avoids classifications. His 2010 full length, released on Ninja, was described by Future Sequence as “Create(ing) his own sound.” and BBC Music noted the album as “Electrifyingly enveloping…Mind-melting invention.”
