Tom Middleton's new direction

One of the UK's most accomplished DJ/producers, Tom Middleton, has conceived a new live music project.

Called Amba, the new band pools Middleton's production nous and technical wizardry and fuses it with the drums of Andy Gangadeen, Tom Szirtes' piano, Chris Taylor's bass and the guitar of Charlie Casey to assemble a spanking new collision between organic instrumentation and electronica.

Their first album, entitled 'Life Tracks', will effectively be Tom Middleton's debut solo long player, and is going to be released on Big Chill Recordings.

This Friday 29th June sees the band's live debut at London's National Film Theatre where Amba will perform accompanied by cutting edge VJ/visual artists Ben Mason, a.k.a. Red Dog, and Nick Hillel a.k.a. Yeast. Both are highly accomplished and visionary film makers, having worked in commercial and artistic fields for clients including Back to Basics, Channel 4, Glastonbury, Stop the War Coalition, Fabric, and many more.

Their collaboration is bound to be an audio-visual feast, augmented by DJ sets from Big Chill artists Alucidnation, Pete Lawrence and Leggo Beast in the Film Café. Tickets are priced at £14.75 with concessions just £10.75 (BFI members £1.00 less), and are available from theNational Film Theatre website or 020 7633 0274.

The Film Café will be open to Tom Middleton ticket holders only. Make sure you get down to see what all the fuss is about!
