Classifying him as ambiance doesn't feel right to me. I know he does a lot of it but he's all over the place so I just go with saying he's an electronic artist.


As for favorite song, Rubber Johnny was what introduced me to his music. That's still my favorite, but I have so much more of his work to listen to so that may change over time.

Ventolin is also really good, as is all of ICBYD.

It was an IDM thread in another forum that got me into electronic music in general, and I'm always changing my tastes and listening to different bands. It started with bands like Aphex Twin and Venetian Snares (pretty much polar opposites) and moved towards the more relaxing end with bands like Boards of Canada (
