I've tossed it back to the METAL team, I'm expecting a move to usbut I haven't listened to the whole album yet, so I can be wrong

Oh I think Igorrr is certainly coming back to us, seems like a fit on first listen.

Igorrr's been rejected in RIO / Avant Team previously, so they need three unanimous "YES" votes via their recent album. Now checking ...

EDIT: Now under eval in Metal Team.

After I heard some Aphex Twin I went after more inside the IDM scene. Given that I always liked Drum and Bass I became really interested in this IDM subgenre that they call "Drill n Bass" and the derived genre Breakcore, and eventually found Igorrr.

And that is why I think the most similar artist we have here is Squarepusher. He basically makes IDM, most notably Drill, with jazz/rock referentials. Igorrr does IDM, mostly breakcore, with metal referentials.

To find them listed here was a big coincidence, since I never thought of them as prog rockers. Nevertheless I think both are very fair additions, since more than set structures and aesthetics Prog Rock is about trying different things with Rock.

Two problems:
- Squarepusher had his place in the Jazz Rock section, Igorrr on the other hand won't have such an easy classification at PA (I'd agree with something more broad such as xover, eclectic or even avantgarde). but since they are primarily electronica producers, by my analogy they'd be Electronic Prog - they just dont have anything to do with the Electronic Prog tradition, but they are one and the other.
- Both sample music, but Squarepusher's is organic - he samples his own playing. One could say that Igorrr is just a IDM producer that likes to sample metal.

edit: nevermind, drums and guitars are his work (vocals might be too)

In my country Igorrrr is a very popular artist and accepted as prog rock (Germany). At least on this site:
