about

‘Orbit’ is Axel Toben’s debut album. A natural progression from his previous composer work as Alejandro Bento on his ‘Ripples’ EP (which got remixed by the likes of Robot Koch, Memotone, Christopher Willits, and more) and his 2019 electronica-infused EP titled ‘Phonosynthesis’ written under this new moniker. ‘Orbit’ bridges his electronic and acoustic worlds into one, with the piano as the driving force of the record, this time accompanied by rich voicing, textures, and pads that add to the melodic, rhythmic, emotive, cinematic and hypnotic sound that Axel Toben has become synonymous with. Written entirely during quarantine, ‘Orbit’ serves as Axel Toben’s signpost, during a time of greater unknowns than our generation has ever known, and the destabilizing nature of the current events, his message seems to read, it’s going to be ok, it’s all about the journey, and there is hope.

The first single, Orbit, was originally released for Piano Day 2020, and included in the official playlist by Nils Frahm.
