Todd Bodine forms with ‘Forms’ an album he likes

“This is my best album for sure”, says Todd. We can’t be exactly sure on that one, all three albums from Todd Bodine have been great. “Forms” however, is perhaps the most complex and mature album that the Berlin producer and DJ has accomplished to date. And it’s also out with us! Todd has worked at full speed over the last six months to bring us this fine piece of work.

As a DJ playing around the world and as a producer in the highest ranks of consistency, Todd Bodine has constantly developed as an artist. Releases and remixes on respected labels, and collaborations with various artists have made him an internationally popular electronic musician. In 2007 he finally began to perform as a live act, and what club would better fit Todd’s new live premiere than the Panorama Bar in Berlin!?

Todd shows with “Forms”, his innate knowledge of the two sides of electronic dance music. This is a meeting of peaktime euphoria with the relaxing bliss of the hazy morning light. A meeting of hypnotic natural rhythms and driving cut-up sounds. Todd can impress you with dancefloor bombs and also with his sophisticated sound visions. The sound of Detroit would probably be the best comparison. All of the tracks are cleverly designed to work without being overly intellectual. Everything flows and is filled with a subtle density of character that is well known to those familiar with Todd Bodine. This album speaks it’s own language, a rare and unique form of communication that very few other producers are able to replicate.

A worldwide Todd Bodine tour is currently in the pipeline, stay tuned!
