Roly Porter – Aftertime [2011, Subtext]

One that probably should have made it onto my best of 2011 list just for sake of originality alone. Huge release by Porter (one half of the Bristol dubstep duo Vex’d) after taking some time off under-impressed with the state of the catch-all genre tag he had been playing a large role in evolving. In this solo debut he carves into uncharted territory with hugely atmospheric ambient passages offering some breathing room a midst downright heavy and explosive soundscapes bringing a great flow to the album. An absolutely engrossing listen I keep coming back to time and time again.
