(audio) Xanopticon live in Los Angeles, 13 Aug 2011

Xanopticon is unequalled in his mastery of composing music that is simultaneously surgically precise, amazingly complex and devastatingly brutal. And that’s exactly what I want from music, but I so rarely find it. But I can always count on Xanopticon to deliver the goods.

Most artists (electronic or otherwise) need to put out a few albums to really mature and hit their stride. Not Xanopticon. His debut album, Liminal Space, is the work of a seasoned master, and in one stroke cemented his legendary status with the breakcore illuminati. And deservedly so.

Even though his output has been sporadic since that album’s release in 2003, he still tours extensively. And now that he’s forsaken his east coast roots to seek greener pastures (or for whatever reason; I don’t really know) out here on the west coast, my chances of catching him more than once every couple years have greatly increased.
