New LA Times
The star of tonight's label showcase will undoubtedly be 22-year-old wunderkind plastiq phantom, a disciple of the Aphex Twin/Squarepusher School of apocalyptic drill'n'bass who may just surpass his masters one day. Aside from his chaotic, orchestral studio creations, the San Diego-bred Seattle resident likes to dip his diabolical fingers into the TRL pool, blowing apart top-tenners from Destiny's Child and Pink and reassembling them with mad, fractured brilliance. Similarly deranged brothers in arms, including Diagram of Suburban Chaos and the Snodgrass, round out the bill.
