If any album deserves to be on the Mount Rushmore of seminal drum & bass classics, it's this one. In 1997, Rupert Parkes, better known as Photek, would forever change the landscape of drum & bass with his monumental debut LP.

Released on Astralwerks and Virgin imprint Science, Modus Operandi was a conceptual masterpiece that reframed the thick sonic brush of jungle into something more cerebral and subtle. As Photek explains, "This was music purely about soundscapes, space, bass." Though sparse - textured with just drums, synth, effects and limited instrumentation - this record is still intense and dynamic. Using his penchant for intricate programming and polyrhythmic complexity, Photek combines his love for jazz, Detroit techno and experiential ambient to create a moody hinterland that's fluid, mysterious and fascinating. — The Analog Vault
