Ziltoid and Ki are brilliant albums I should have investigated his solo stuff years ago!
I've also been listening to Cloud Kicker a lot as well --- excellent stuff - this guy deserves much more recognition.
I upgraded my drum library to Steven Slate drums which are killer - I researched several libraries and Slates won hands down - very rich and warm (and the EX version is cheap). The kicks in particular are excellent. The anti machine gun feature is a godsend as well. Many library developers seem to forget that its having convincing alternating hits at the same velocity level that is the key to realism, rather than 20 hits of different velocities.
