"Chromaphon EP"
Toob
Release Date: 13 Jun 2011
About

TOOB! We love them. The first-ever album release on Process Recordings was their "Push Me, Pull You" in late 2008, and was accompanied by a series of singles: "Clipto", "Skinbox", "Dervish Angel" and the "Reshapes 01" EP. Rave reviews for all of them, radio around Europe went mad with them, DJs from Andrew Weatherall to Don Letts played them, but the highlight for Rich and Jake was when their "Offset (Swamp Mix)" featured prominently in the hit US TV show CSI: Crime Scene Investigations.

Rich Thair has been busy drumming away for the new Red Snapper album (and now tour), whilst Jakeone has been spreading his bleeps and beats into various projects, including his "Stingrays EP" on Process and working with Tokyo's brilliantly eccentric Coppe Sweetrice. Meanwhile... stems and mixes were shuttling back and forth between rural Wales and manic London, and new TOOB tracks started to appear. We now proudly present you the first four of them in the shape of the brand new "Chromaphon EP", due out in Summer 2011. And to celebrate this release the two chaps will be delivering some very special DJ sets at selected night-spots around Europe.

"Chromaphon", "Wavaphon", "Rotating Road" and "Harmonic Ping" are a entirely logical progression from the last album, merging the electronic with the organic, delivering the unique sound of... TOOB!
