For the shows he's been playing in support of ISAM, Tobin stations himself in a stunningly futuristic, cube-like structure that looks close to a highly evolved Tetris shape. Thanks to the powers of projection mapping and pre-rendered imagery, various colors, patterns, and images are shot onto the face of the structure in time with the music. As both his concerts and sonic products pull further and further away from his roots as a conventional DJ whose tracks were spun in strip clubs, reversing course isn't something the man gives much thought to. "Certain people will gravitate toward different periods of what you've done, and that's really natural," he says. "But as somebody who is making music and is trying to develop, it would be quite sad to go back to where you were in maybe 1993. It'd be so irrelevant, too."
