Ignition LP
Self-Released
Street: 05.25
Sparx = Flux Pavilion + Datsik

Despite being personally convinced that most people try to make electronic music just to be able to say they do—if I hear “Hi, I’m a DJ” one more time I may scream—there are exceptions when someone can legitimately produce something worth listening to a few times, which is the case here. Though the album didn’t tell me much about how he uses music as his creative outlet other than that he’s inspired by South London dubstep, Sparx can make music. With vocals supplied by a local rapper, the album contains both the instrumental and complete versions of each song. I personally preferred the instrumentals, as the vocal additions seemed to take away from the production and left me wishing the producer chose a different vocalist. –Julia Sachs
