    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

    For those unaware of his 'steez', Luke Vibert came out of the same school of acid-fried Cornish beast trickery as Aphex Twin, and among his many fine album releases he numbers one of the greatest lost drum & bass long-players of all-time: 1996's 'Drum & Bass For Papa' (under the name Plug). If you ever see that album, buy it, and if you don't like it I'll give you your money back. Anyway, on 'Lober's Acid' Vibert concerns himself with the tweaking
