It's been a bit of a vintage year for electronic music, with old hands like Four Tet and Caribou, releasing standout albums, and newer names such as Walls, Mount Kimbie, Gold Panda, James Blake and Dam Mantle helping to reinvigorate a genre that has been much in need of a tonic.
The latest addition to 2010's bumper crop comes Norfolk resident Luke Abbott who just this week has released his debut album for Border Community, Holkham Drones. Full of layered textures and sounds, tones and drones that build up and up to hypnotic effect, Abbott has produced an album that could happily soundtrack a night on the sofa just as it could light up braver DJ's sets.
Following swiftly off the back of his brilliant EP for Amazing Sounds, Holkham Drones firmly seats Abbott at the top table, and as such more than deserving of a place in the Slutty Fringe Mix Series hall of fame.
