The long-awaited Source Direct recording arguably betters labelmate Photek at crafting that rare thing: a listenable album of unfiltered drum'n'bass. While Photek's Modus Operandi was unapologetically and unrelentingly dark, Exorcise the Demons has a few notable detours into acid effects and even what sounds like occasional disco samples. It's about as obsessively produced as could be expected for an album that's taken so long to appear, but for fans of jungle's intelligent tech-step wing, it's an excellent purchase.
