Boomkat Product Review:
Killer archival avant-jungle cuts from Luke Vibert.
Many of you will fondly member the twelves and album Vibert released as Plug on Blue Angel and Rising High in the early-mid 1990's, off-kilter drum 'n bass cuts that really stood out from the more po-faced stuff that dominated the genre back then. Well, earlier this year Vibert handed Ninja Tune a bunch of DATs containing never before heard Plug material recorded in '95-'98, and they've compiled them into an album that really feels like a missing piece in the "intelligent" D-n-B jigsaw. This stuff isn't for the dancefloor - it's head music in the inimitable Vibert style, at once dazzlingly complex and mischievous, sometimes bordering on the knowingly silly. And it's a delight to listen to: check the stepping, cinematic involutions of 'Feeling So Special', the darkside stabbing and sitar twanging of 'Come On My Skeleton', the Photek/Phuturistix-style rollage of 'No Reality', the old-skool rinse-out of 'A Quick Plug For A New Slot' and jazz accenting of 'Flight 78'. In short, it's some of the strongest and most appealing material Vibert has ever recorded, and really embodies the irreverent, anything-goes spirit of the era it was birthed in.
