Eusebeia :: Realization EP (Mindtrick)

A quaint four-track EP that reveals finer dubstep elements—casually drifting, falling, and fading away. Eusebeia returns to Mindtrick with Realization, a quaint four-track EP that reveals finer dubstep elements—casually drifting, falling, and fading away.

L own :: Hardened Soul (Mindtrick)

Venturing through eroded and minimized percussive extracts, Hardened Soul‘s maximized eerie textures and broken beat liner prevails.

Artifact :: Archaic Line (Deadplate)

More good—forward looking bass heavy music from Bristol and London, a collaboration which seems to be all the rage at the moment. Artifact delivers this mutant house/techno/garage hybrid with unfettered authority. Skittery hats and swinging percussion usher in a killer steppy groove with “machine gun” snares (a somewhat clichéd term, but appropriate) and tight sub, which […]

Kowton vs Dusk :: Kowton v Dusk EP (Keysound)

A great release from Keysound, pretty much right on the pulse of the bass crossover scene. London and Bristol unite (again) with this deep offering from Kowton & Dusk. In the London corner, Dusk brings his understated bass drenched garage stylings in the form of the slightly sinister “Fraction”. Squaring up to him in the […]
