While many of his peers have been lured away by mainstream house and techno, Zomby does his own thing. While his ’08 debut, ‘Where Were U In ’92’, was a love letter to rave, and 2011’s ‘Dedication’ dark-hearted, ethereal, eight-bit electronica, ‘With Love’ opens itself up to the entire club music paradigm. Ambitious? Yep: that’s why he needs a 33-track double album to do it – and it makes picking highlights difficult. But they include the bouncy rave-cum-techno of ‘This One’, ‘Overdose’s relentless jungle assault and the skeletal neo-grime of ‘How To Ascend’, though its the hardcore tributes – like the punishing, brutal breakbeat of ‘777’ – that quicken the heart most. The results are like a retrospective charting 25 years of innovation in UK club music.
