Amon Tobin : ISAM Live 2.0
Picking up from where Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live left at the end of 2011, the immersive A/V show made an even bigger imprint on the world of electronic music in the past months. ISAM Live started off 2012 with rapturous response at two Coachella headline performances this year. Overseas, a sold-out night at London’s Brixton Academy was shortly followed by a tour run in Australia, which included two sold-out back-to-back performances at the iconic Sydney Opera House in June. The performances, which were streamed live from Sydney, accumulated over 500,000 views. ISAM additionally made a hugely celebrated appearance at Sonar festival in Barcelona on June 15th.
For the Autumn run of dates throughout America, ISAM Live 2.0 will launch: introducing the new ISAM construction, enhanced with new audio and visual elements. Part of the new content in the ISAM Live show will be composed of forthcoming Two Fingers material. Tobin will be revealing new music from his beat-oriented alias, in celebration of the highly anticipated sophomore album due this Fall on Big Dada. All past ISAM Live shows have sold out, so get your tickets now or be lost in the dust come fall.

A couple of years back Simon Green decided that he wanted to do more than just DJ when he was out promoting the epic, beautiful music he makes as Bonobo.
Painstakingly he pieced together a live band that could open his vision out live. Drums, keyboard, guitar, sampler, himself on bass, a singer, a saxophonist and a three piece string section. It took time to pull it together but the results have been spectacular.
Ninja Tune release Bonobo 'Live From Koko' DVD on the 24th March which includes exclusive interview and footage from the sell out gig.
