Used to listen to him all the time.

Benn Jordan is now and old man bitching about music he doesn't understand/appreciate. Get off my lawn, juke!

What a damned shame. Hope he has a mirror and some self-reflection handy (as others might find his earlier [better?] work grating themselves).

He made great tunes on Sublight, which need to be released on vinyl. Couldn't tell you about his more 'mature' works. Wish the local hero the best.

Im sort of a new fan of Benn Jordan's work, not heard everything yet but the acid / IDM / drill n bass he outputs is all of a high quality. his 2011 album is one of the albums of the year, and the honda advert soundtrack should help grow the fanbase. his influences seem to be boards of canada, squarepusher, aphex twin and joe satriani?? - his guitar and piano work is good. some people ask if he is better than venetian snares but the styles are too different for comparison. his work is more accessible than most IDM artists, and can be more entertaining for rave / breakcore fans too.
