Rob Orme's melancholy productions often sound something like Play-era Moby making 2-step. That might sound like a dubious proposition, but it really works—check last year's standout "Hold It Down" single on Well Rounded for proof. Nevertheless, the 23-year-old beatmaker—who cites both videogames and J-Pop as early influences—has been expanding his sonic palette as of late, dabbling in harder, bassline-influenced sounds. 2011 promises another Well Rounded EP, singles on new labels from Doorly and Kanji Kinetic, and a slew of other releases. You can also find him behind the decks at Sub.FM, where he hosts a weekly radio program.
