    Whether dealing out breakbeat punishments like "777," wriggling dubstep like "Ascension," or mystical funk like "Isis," he sounds like no one else, simultaneously street and chic, enticing and elusive.

    A truly stylish but somewhat overly long affair.

    Even many of his prettiest, most delicate tracks are grounded in thumping bass. As a result, it's a more satisfying listen than Shlohmo's or Nosaj Thing's albums.

    If someone compiles their favourite 12 tracks from it, they may well have their album of the year, but in its current state With Love is pretty far from a classic.

    Between the two, disc 1 is more memorable than its counterpart, but together they still form a fascinating insight into one of the foremost production talents operating on our shores today.

    While With Love is an ambitious and entertainingly composed undertaking, offering glimpses into Zomby’s varied inspirations, it can still be frustratingly piecemeal and somewhat self-indulgent.

    Zomby has long been one of the most eclectic and buzzed-about producers coming out of the UK, with productions ranging from rave-y acid houseZomby has long been one of the most eclectic and buzzed-about producers coming out of the UK, with productions ranging from rave-y acid house to mournful post-dubstep, and on this 33-track double album he veers wildly from genre to genre in a thrilling showcase of his talents. Time-wise, this album could fit on one disc, but the dichotomy allows for a study in contrasts, his supreme skills in balance and sequencing. One of the year's finest. Collapse
