Dimlite - Runbox Weathers (2005)

Probably the closest thing to Prefuse I've posted here, Dimlite comes through with a fantastic debut album. Runbox Weathers is an explosion of leftfield electronic/trip-hop with melodies and beats that could make the toughest man wear a smile. It incorporates many styles from over the years, including jazz, samba, and a little '60s-'70s soul as well. My personal favorite, "In Groups To The Hydrandd (Album Edit)", is an absolute monster; it starts off slow and continually rises in energy, busting out beats, vocal samples, and rhythms like it's going out of style. The track culminates in a rousing plethora of detuned synth samples and low-end madness. If this is the kind of work that you enjoy, I would grab this album as fast as possible.
