Producer announces new album set for release via Ostgut Ton; shares live recording


Tobias. returns to Ostgut Ton this April for the release of his third full-length release, entitled Eyes In The Center.

Above, to give you a little taste of that album is a live recording from the producer that clocks in at almost 90 minutes, captured in Tokyo last month as part of the Mind Off x Re:Birth event. The recording sees the producer deliver a set characterised by typically steely techno that rarely lets up on the energy levels.

On the album, set for release on April 21, the Berghain resident continues to explore the modular-heavy techno and ambient excursions of his past work on Ostgut Ton. The album sees the producer stripping back his equipment usage, opting not to get lost in using too many machines to create the sounds he wanted, with the album promising peak-time, heads-down and club-ready sounds alongside more leftfield trips within the techno sphere.
