Amon Tobin

Amon Adonai Santos de Araujo Tobin, better known as Amon Tobin, is a Brazilian musician, DJ, and producer of electronic music.

He is best known for his use of sampling jazz and blues music to produce albums in the emerging "trip hop" genre in the late 1990s.

Tobin has released seven major studio albums since 1996 under the London-based Ninja Tune record label where he is considered one of their more successful artists.

In 2005, he created the musical score to Ubisoft's critically successful video game Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.

He is also noted for his entirely field-recorded album Foley Room, released in 2007.

His music has been used in numerous television commercials, promotions, and major motion pictures including The Italian Job (2003) and 21.

Tobin has created songs for several independent films, including the 2008 Hungarian horror film Taxidermia.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Amon Tobin began his career in Brighton, England with his debut album Adventures in Foam.
