Kraddy (real name: Matthew Kratz) was a founding member of LA electronic sensation the Glitch Mob; he left the group in 2009 owing to the ever-popular "creative differences." Even before going solo, the musician was lumped in with the nascent glitch-hop movement, mainly on the strength of 2008's "Android Porn" — which actually does sound somewhat like robots getting their swerve on. Kraddy's new EP, Labyrinth, is a better representation of his genre-spliced approach to music. Hip-hop, dub-step, electro, breakbeat, technofunk and all genres in between smash up against each other like a writhing dance-floor orgy.
