A God of IDM. Kirk spent nearly 20 years with Cabaret Voltaire, an early and influential industrial/electronic band based in Sheffield. Since their split in the early 1990's Kirk has produced an extraordinary amount of music on his own, nearly all of it excellent. His music is dark, funky, and chock-full of distortion. He isn't afraid to mess it up and get dirty. Kirk likes to record under aliases like Sandoz, Al Jabr, Dark Magus, and Electronic Eye, but he also issues albums under his own name. The most recent album is called Loop Static. Anyone with an interest in electronic music should give this guy a shot. A master.
