Picking up where his recent TTT 12" and his off-kilter hardcore remix of Special Request. 'Body Pill' is a highly cohesive body (excuse the pun) of work taking in elements of 80's post-punk funk on album opener 'Ris' through to the disco-leaning strings of 'Abrazo' and the ambient doodlings of 'Way Stone'. Elsewhere there is some of the finest experimental house and techno this side of L.I.E.S. with 'Refugio'.
