Luke Vibert – Yoseph

Like Aphex Twin, Luke Vibert hails from Cornwall and has recorded under a variety of pseudonyms (including Wagon Christ, Plug and Amen Andrews) for various labels, including Ninja Tune, Rephlex, Mo’Wax and Planet Mu. Unlike the Twin, Vibert’s abstract electro usually radiates an approachable warmth, and this new album for Warp is no exception. YosepH is equal parts eerie introspection (“Liptones”) and industrialised funk (“NokTup”) with a queasy undertow courtesy of Vibert’s collection of vintage analogue synths.
