Ah! Thanks for sparking a conversation!
Yes, I know what you mean about Clark. I think his self-titled album was great, but the rest is touch and go. Same with Bibio. I heard a Bibio track once and it floored me (can't recall the name at the moment) so I bought the album and it was totally missable.
Bonobo is a bit guilty of this kind of thing too. Capable of great things, but usually just resorts to half-baked, pretty-good-nothing-more stuff.
Reliable electronic artists are rare. There's RDJ, Koze, Nicolas Jaar, Vladislav Delay, and... I'm having a hard time thinking of others just now.
