    <b> Luke Vibert </b> - Lover's Acid

    Before Luke Vibert's small but adoring army of fans get excited, let's clear something up. 'Rock' is not a new artist album, but merely a collection of EPs he released on Planeet Mu in the past five years. However, Vibert's obsession with the 303 is apparent throughout this album, as is his playful sense of sampling and arranging. As its title suggests, 'Funky Acid Stuff' boasts insane frequency tweaking over live funk lines. It sounds like he's lifting the beats from Kraftwerk's 'Robots' on 'Homewerk', and 'Prick Tat' is a pretty soundtrack affair, in marked contrast to the mad breakbeat rave of 'Dirty Fucker'. Irrespectice of his hyperactive stylistic shifts, Vibert completists will still loce this album.
