Amon Tobin speaks to us from spacial abyss, announces limited edition Dark Jovian EP for Record Store Day

I know what you’re thinking. You haven’t heard much from Amon Tobin lately, so he’s probably made a natural career progression following the release (and accompanying, stupendous tour) of ISAM back in 2011. As space exploration gradually becomes more privatized, Tobin looked to get ahead of the game by attaching rockets to his elaborate cube structure thing and exploring the Universe single-handedly! I know I personally imagined a launch and subsequent betrayal of gravity happening at multiple points during my own witnessing of ISAM, but I’m supremely glad, now that’s he’s taken things to alien benefit. I just know that thing can do a barrel roll.

And apparently it can transmit important news back down to Earth, as Tobin has graciously taken the time to relay info about his new Dark Jovian 12-inch, set for release April 18 courtesy of his longtime Ninja Tune home. The release is pretty to look at, and it features a handful of new (to us) tracks that were recorded a “year or two ago,” plus remixes from Lee Gamble, Logos, and Eprom. Tobin says that these tracks were borne from “binge-watching space exploration films,” but he needn’t draw a distinction between watching TV and looking out the window. Oh, we know the truth.

Look here for more on Tobin’s astronomical inspirations.
