Mad illuminati mask aside, Zomby is an enigma. You can tell just by listening.
It's hard to know what to say about about Hyperdub's undead producer. His sound evolves and skips about with every release, making it hard to put a finger on his style.
Ranging from the straight-ahead dubstep of Spliff Dub (and you have to hear the Rustie mix of that!) to his homage to rave and hardcore Where Were U In '92?, his experimental dabblings in wonkier music that lie somewhere inbetween have garnered the most attention.
Indeed, if this August sees him playing with lo-fi trancers Animal Collective, then October sees him out alongside dancehall warrior The Bug. That out there.
