Superdefekt’s Roundup of the last weeks entries in Dubstep, Halfstep, Nustep & UK Garage
Nice selection for week 5 with new releases by Ital Tek, FCL, Perverse, Exit Records & more.
GoldFFinch‘s notorious Funky Steppa in a congenial reworking by Swamp 81 darling Trusta – tight as fuck, as they say. Same goes for Policy‘s remix of Outer Twigs, using a leftfieldish house approach full of warm analogue sounds. Worth every penny.
Warm and engaging post dubstep sounds out of Ital Tek‘s sonic laboratory – taking more than one clue from oldschool electronica styles. A route which Throwing Snow is taking in his remix as well, whereas Deft is going for a more energized, rhythm-centric approach in his reworking.
Framed by two warm and fluffy bass house tracks with a distinct playful british feel this EP holds two dancefloor weapons which emphasize skeletal drums and deep basslines in a Swamp 81 manner. Not bad at all.
Two tracks of dready halfstep rave for the rude bwoy posse, using classic ‘arcdcore mentasm sounds in conjunction with deep tribal grooves and darkest sub bass waves to full effect. Impulsive deep night dancefloor atmospheres for the dubstep warehouse.
Five bass kick heavy reworkings of Youngstar‘s Pulse X. It‘s all about the drums here, be it distorted and grimey as in Slackk‘s gunshot filled version, halfsteppin‘ as in Elsewhere‘s mix or concentrated on the snares and claps as in the remixes by Pedro 123, Visionist or Blackwax. One for the Swamp 81 crowd and – even more – the Night Slugs posse.
Dubstep in its purest form. Fearsome brooding sonic bass sounds reverberating out of the hollow starless spacey beyond the populated galaxies. Atmospheric in the darkest sense.
Two contemporary drum‘n‘bass tracks which took a lesson or two from modern bass music. The title track is a skeletally jumping grime‘n‘bass tune, the b-side reinvokes classical jungle structures in a ultra fresh way. Top notch.
Eight banging party tunes from the Top Billin Crew, ranging from deep sub bass shuffling halfstep tracks to oldskool rave reminiscences, from contemporary bass house and 303 heavy hip house to favela funked bass groovers. One for everyone.
Epic afterhour reworking of FCL‘s deephouse extravaganza It‘s You – relying only on vocals, claps and some sparse bass this is one lush and blissful monster of a track. Beautiful in every sense.
