Photek - Avalanche
I love Photek. Modus operandi is still one of my favourite albums.

His new EP sees him expanding into dubstep, with two tracks that frankly aren't that good. I would have expected something a little more complex, a bit more interesting. "101", on the other hand, is very interesting. And "This City" isn't bad for a house track.
Overall, a competent enough effort, but disappointing given this guy's background.

Anyone else heard it?

Photek did the latest DJ Kicks, it doesn't really have any drum and bass in it but I have to say it's one of my favourite things so far this year. Highly recommend giving it a listen if you're into that futuremusic / UK bass / whatever the hell it's called.
