Wasteland is a pair of electronic-music producers: DJ Scud (Toby Reynolds) and I-Sound (Craig Willingham). Reynolds boasts what I gather to be a sterling resume in the realm of dance music; Willingham is apparently more experimentally inclined. Regardless of their background, it’s obvious that they’re both creative, intrepid musicians. They combine electronic ambience and programmed rhythms in any number of ingenious ways, creating a sound world that’s alternately serene and scarifying, funky and fractured.
