And while the energy level varies from release to release, there is always - amid the sloshing cadences and imitation ring tones and spiked samples - a very palpable edge to this British musician's creations. His default sense of place lies somewhere between inescapable nightmare and club freak-out nightmare, and one gets the sense that that's just how he likes it, whether we like it or night.
