You'd be hard-pressed to find an electronic composer with a longer list of pop credentials than soundtrack-composer-turned-UK-mixologist Howie B. Since his arrival a few years back, the remarkably inventive studio maestro has remixed work by U2, Bjork, Tricky, Robbie Robertson, Ry Cooder, Brian Eno, and West African popster Baaba Maal. His third -- and arguably best -- album, SNATCH, covers the spectrum of post-techno possibility. Here is a funky, experimental dance record that'll inspire as much head noddin' as noodle scratching. To wit: the elegant strings and electronic bleeps of "Trust" fade gracefully into the mellifluous breakbeats of "Cotton High," while the understated "Anniversary" loops hide-and-seek synth stabs around a deep, bubbly track that suggests the best Stereolab. This is a fascinating record, one that touches upon every sonic option en route to creating an aural collage that incorporates every hue under the sun. The maestro has done it again.
