Second Stimilus / Synchro Surfer
12" | 2018 | EU | Original (ESP Institute)
10,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Toby Tobias has a lengthy history of disturbing the peace. This is his second offering for the ESP Institute. On side A, Second Stimulus stirs shimmering staccato chords, roaming pipes and detuned robotic sighs into quite the disorienting stew—the loose arrangement remaining fragmented over 9 minutes of touch-and-go 808 programming, picking up a pseudo bassline assembled from sub toms, introducing a gritty break loop and eventually blissing out into oblivion. With side B’s Synchro Surfer, Toby plays with the notion of suspense by gently teasing a muted kick and percussion rhythm under washes of white noise, bleeps and sirens that are tape-dubbed and which, over time, begin a dialogue with each other, as if the machines have declared mutiny on the garage. Toby continues to stretch his limits with his output for the ESP Institute, possibly headed toward a full-fledged devolution of conventional dance music. These two songs may have you arrested for public nuisance.

inc. Nebraska RemixToby Tobias joins Delusions again for what will be his sixth(!) 12” entitledThe Rain. The prolific Londoner whose releases have graced suchvenerable labels as Rekids, ESP Intistute and Let’s Play House, is back witha vengeance, delivering two mighty fine originals plus a remix fromNebraska.In true Toby Tobias style, The Rain got made on an MPC, sliced andedited from a single live take through the desk then accidentally deleted sono further mixing, sequencing or editing could be carried out. But what isan A&R man’s nightmare, turns out to be the record buying DJ’s gain, asthe improvised, dubby vibe and raw as ***k mixdown give the track anauthentic feel and energy which could only come from the madness inToby’s method.Fresh from his brilliant releases on Mister Saturday Night and Razor n Tape,we have our man Nebraska do his thing on the remix of The Rain.Dropping down the BPM’s a bit from Toby’s more frenetic original,Nebraska add’s a healthy dose of moogy lead lines to the lo-slung housegroove, perfect for warming up the dancefloor.Closing this release we have New Way Of Feeling which sees Toby inplayful mode with a percussion heavy, driving basement jam. FM padsform the centerpiece of the track whilst flourishes of Juno come and go,hints of early 90’s IDM shining through on the glistening sine-wavemelodies. All in all a glorious melting pot of ideas and influences all overthis release which make for one of his strongest yet for Delusions

Toby Tobias can be found in the shadows of South London. This is his first offering for the ESP Institute. On side A, 'Gravitator' evolves slowly over ten minutes from a somber intro of supernatural sighs, pulsing machine feedback and techno squelches into an ethereal landscape peppered with dissonant fragments of synth. With side B’s 'Right Turn To Nowhere', Toby stretches out even further, flexing a tasteful programming of the 808 while taking the long road to a reverb-drenched crescendo of distortions and expansive string swells. After a prolific output of material for other quality labels around the world, Toby Tobias has undoubtedly re-focused his point-of-view upon his induction to the ESP Institute. These two songs will have you locking up your children at night.
