tonikom started as tonik in 2002, releasing several now-deleted cd-rs and changed the name to tonikom in 2006, documented in the album title 'tonikom killed tonik'. after two self-released albums, 'epoch' sees the light of day on hymen records - some kind of a logical conclusion; besides the aphex twin, meat beat manifesto, underworld, the orb and leftfield she also names hymen records' artist beefcake as one of her influences. 'epoch' is an enthralling mixture: the melodic richness of idm meet straight d'n'b/breakbeat rhythms, electronic and acoustic instrumentation is enriched with well-placed sampling, sequenced patterns keep embedded ambient soundscapes together, supplemented by power and intensity known from other electronic sub-genres. a diversified, innovating, truly epoch-making release.
