Mario Gonzalez

Chicago musician Mario Gonzalez jumps from one style to another with amazing ease, crafting harsh, abrasive ambient pop ballads, glitched and zonked out sampledelica and filthy, cut-up walls of sound set to deconstructed, out-of-context hip-hop/dubstep beatz. Already Dead Tapes record label describe Mario's sound as "young Aphex Twin, with angst and girl problems". I'd like to add he also sounds like Amon Tobin falling in love with British late 70's industrial scene and Japanoise (and the fetishistic imagery connected to it).
