Toman returns to No Art to deliver his five-track ‘Am I Conscious’ EP.
Continuing his rise as one of The Netherlands’ most talked about talents, Amsterdam-based DJ/producer Toman continues to showcase exactly why he’s an artist in such high demand. Serving as an A&R for No Art, summer welcomed the launch of the label’s vinyl-focused sub-imprint No Art Red with the collaborative ‘Due’ EP alongside label bosses ANOTR. Up next, early November marks his solo return to the imprint as he follows up material via Cuttin’ Headz and Moscow with five fresh offerings across ‘Am I Conscious’.
Title cut ‘Am I Conscious’ opens proceedings as freaky melodies meet entrancing vocals and wonky drums, while ‘Sabelo’ delivers powerful rolling percussion, spiralling background sonics and further hypnotic vocal work to shape up a peak time terrace anthem. Next up, ’Everywhere I Go I’m Haunted By Jazz’ showcases an upfront and lively track guided by a chunky core groove and infectious samples, before the deep chords of ‘Automatic’ enter the fray to offer up a funky slice of rich house music. To close, ‘Contigo’ takes things firmly into the after hours, inviting listeners on a journey through hazy tones, warping electronics and sparse atmospheres.
