Dillinja's production here is unbeatable - by what I mean the sound and the arrangement. This carries the music which is simplistic by design to maximum effect. Some say he uses the same sounds but he's got his formula and it wins. The only thing I can't get into is the vocals - in a club you're not going to complain but a tad cringeworthy otherwise.

A Darkside masterpiece of biblical proportions, the album which upon its much delayed and anticipated release truly changed the landscape of dark Drum n Bass forever. 'Cybotron' showed a new direction for dark dnb and showed that it was possible to make a heavy tack whilst still maintaining that crucial 'funk' element. Perhaps not the most varied LP, what 'Cybotron' lacks in bredth it more than compensates with a standard-setting consistency. Its hallowed tracklisting reads like a list of the best darkside tunes ever. From the grinding, metallic energy of 'Go Dillinja' to the twisted funk of 'All Aboard', 'Cybotron' never fails to impress as each of its 5 plates was worthy of a single release, not a compliment which can be honestly leveled at almost any other artists efforts. After the long wait 'Cybotron' could not have been a better indicator of where DnB was heading, or a better display of bass-master Dillinja's well established abilities as a producer.
