Storm is Steve Stoll's most interesting alias, in my opinion. I find most of his material to be rather dull, but the first 3 Storm releases are all excellent. Lots of acid creeping in, with a very heavily modulated analogue sound throughout.

The debut EP, "Storm", contains an extremely hard, fast and distorted track that once had a panic-stricken sound engineer literally sprinting across a field towards me when I played it at a rave in France. "Art Of Sync" is more subtle, the percussion section being limited to the Roland TR-606, with more twisted analogue grooves in seemingly irregular patterns. "Levy-9" brings the former two releases together in a more pumping format, bringing the TR-909 back into play but keeping it very acidic and hypnotic.

The fourth Storm release, "No More Words" is a departure from the sound of the previous records, leaning more towards the traditional Stoll sound of minimal percussive loops. This is a shame, I think, as it forms the only low point in the series to date.
