Definitely agree with the comments below! James Clements aka ASC, can do no wrong in my eyes. Every album he has produced since 2011 has been absolutely outstanding!! I only say from 2011 as I have no interest in the whole Drum n bass scene so I can't comment on productions prior to 2011.
His ambient releases on Silent Season are honestly some of the finest deep electronic music albums I have ever heard!!
Anyone new to this guys music should check out his double CD album - "Time Heals All" on the fine Silent Season label....utter genius!!!

This guy is rapidly becoming one of the most important names in electronic music. I'm not a massive fan of his older, more conventional drum 'n bass material, but in the last couple of years Clements has found an outlet for a much more ambient and experimental direction. Obviously the hype centres around his role in the Autonomic sound, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Melding ambient and IDM with drum 'n bass, dubstep, techno and a huge obsession with science fiction culture and philosophy, ASC is making some of the most cutting edge music around that still evokes the spaced-out futurism that has defined so much of electronic music for the past 40 years.

Check out the Sci Fi Files EPs on Covert Operations for the more utopic side or his work on new label Auxiliary for a darker vision of the future. His masterpiece, though, is the astonishing Research And Development album under the alias Intex Systems. This album came out in 2006 and yet Clements had to wait four more years for anyone outside the drum 'n bass scene to wake up and realise his talent. It may not be that much longer before we come to regard him as one of the great electronic musicians of the last 20 years.
