Twilight Circus Sound System is the project of Ryan Moore, applying cut-up electronic beats and elements of pop and jazz to conventional electronic dub formats. Horsie develops this sound a bit more coherently than some of Moore's previous releases (it's arguably his best since Other Worlds of Dub, and possibly better), and despite a few banal moments, much of the album grooves along nicely, with some of its beat-heavy moments finding a lovely midpoint between electronica and dub. This makes the album (and much of Moore's other work) a nice alternative to some of electronica's more played-out forms.
