I actually think this guy makes much better music when he collaborates with someone (or at least has some kind of external sound source). Deviation Heat-Treated; VD collab; Fennesz remix on FA2012 etc. Other people's audio just adds that missing depth to his mixes.
the deviation heat-treat release is one of the standout releases of a year that has been pretty much dominated by mark fell, in both terms of experimental long-players and dancefloor singles. really impressive stuff.
