Seriously don't know what to expect from this chappie. He takes his time over his tunes by the looks of it. Lumped in with HudMo, Joker & Zomby because he kicks dubstep in the face & chucks a load of day-glo gloss & random madness all over its silly, wobbly features. I think they tried to call this shit wonky did they not? Well this debut EP for Warp initially reminds me more of where Squarepusher was going with his last EP & LP. That compressed twatted cyber-rock sound. Makes me think of Ratatat too which is slightly upsetting. Things definitely improve threefold on 'Dragonfly' which sounds very much like one of those system destroying Zomby tunes with some proper bonkers samples thrown into the tough wall of pixelated electro saturation & hard-stepping dubstep beats. I think this tune actually stands up to his near-legendary 'Zig-Zag'. The EP continues on its path to disassemble the recent history of contemporary dance. Honestly, 'Beast Nite' is like stadium Braindance - the drums sound really "rock" and that synth guitar suddenly reminds me of Global Goon's early stuff! Or like Add N (to X) playing in an arcade with a bellyful of crunk biscuits. Mainly there's a load of fun to be had with this record. It's a silly, daft, jerky staggering nutcase of a disc with lots of wild ideas & a very full, powerful production. A couple of the more wibbly timbres cause me a bit of grief but you cannot fault the dude when he lets a track free to stomp along like a deranged fluorescent baby Rhino. Worth the wait I reckon!
