    Andean Dub is nothing like his other works, but man am I hooked on them cumbia beats now.

    Island Row is such great stuff. You can hear the shimmer of heat and the cling of humidity as you travel to a place utterly Other.

    @Zitaatje have you looked at the prices for his records on discogs? They are nearly as cheap as downloading.

    Have to agree with the earlier post. Happy Happy was pretty Sucky Sucky. Everything else is brilliant, especially Island Row.

    Need more. Thoroughly unique in a genre that I find to be full of recycled ideas.

    Pillow will always be a classic track, but the Happy Happy album has the dubious honour of being the only album I've returned to the shop in 10 years or so. Absolute piffle.
