    <b> Boxcutter </b> - Glyphic

    It's a playful spirit that Boxcutter - aka Northern Ireland-based producer Barry Lynn explores further on Glyphic, his second album for Planet Mu. The title track makes a neat fist of blending dubstep signifiers with Sun Ra/Pahroh Sanders-style astral jazz. Further intot the album, though, he starts travelling by a map of his own making: 'Foxy' revisits one of dubstep's key inspirations, 2-step-although a ghostly sheen keeps this out of Craig David territory - while 'Nanobot' is far more in line with Planet Mu's nuttier releases, a riot of tumbling, choppy snare drums that suggest Lynn's more an inspired dabbler than a scene champion. Luckily the genre has space for all sorts.
