Science 1996. QEDCD1
Photek had been producing great drum n bass for a while when this, his major label debut was released. I bought it on the back of a rave review in Wire magazine; in fact I seem to remember it figuring highly in their end of year round-up.
It has the rhythmic complexities you’d expect, but it has a fantastic sinister jazzy feel which makes it sound as good now as it did back in ’96.
Photek is still active and has a new album out on his own Photek Productions imprint, available from his web site, together with a few free downloads and some delicious heavyweight vinyl.
