- Artista: Zomby,
Here's the short review of “Dedication”: talented bloke, sometimes a bit foolish, always worth a bet, didn't quite hit bullseye here. The long version is like this. We know few certain facts about Zomby (unless he's unmasked in the tabloids tomorrow like Burial) except that he can be exceptionally good. Take the miniature suite comprising “Lucifer” and “Digital Rain”, suffused with all the pining, honeysuckle perfumery of Aphex Twin at his most empathic. On that note, let's go ahead and call him a chip off the same block as Richard D James. Both are effusively creative, reportedly stockpiling tracks by the hundred. Both have gifts capable of appealing not only to anorakish followers but to whoever chooses music for runway shows and television adverts. Both can be flippant and earnest in equal measure, although Zomby comes off more insolent than impish, thanks to habits like delivering stubs of tunes as finished product, apparently mastered from poor quality MP3.
