Working much like a silent assassin of UK EDM has seen Dobie surreptitiously capture a frenzy of fans that are in the know. It’s been fourteen years since ‘The Sound Of One Hand Clapping’, and despite releasing two projects in 2012, some ears still wavered past his work; to their detriment. ‘We Will Not Harm You’ operates much like a London Sunday market in its vibrant, assorted survey of the electronic melting pot. There’s bleep-infused jazz on ‘Snap, Crackle & Pop’ at one stall and just round the corner, the crisp, concrete junglisms of ‘Crunch Factor No.5’ work their FlyLo-esque charm upon you. Respect is way overdue.
