With the discovery of shady UK producer Atma, FKOF has even surprised itself at having uncovered this exceptional future breaks talent. They don't seem to know much about him, but it's the music that speaks volumes and here we're presented with four exquisitely produced, forward-facing tracks. "One Voice" starts the EP with menacing arpeggiated bass chugs and what sounds like a brooding Russell Crowe sample, the dubstep of "Black Mirror" continues the music for dark alleyways theme, whilst things get more soulful on "See It Here". Finally "Subterranean" introduces some trap attitude for a percussion-led mindblower.
Foundation Audio founder Chad Dubz steps up with his debut album. And, as you'd expect, it's a document of daring dark design. From the moment the anvil-like kicks of opener "Transcending" punctuate with precision, you know you're in for a treat. Deeper into the narrative, cuts such as a "Shaka" and "Dark Ones" tell ominous stories of minor key jungle-minded mischief while cuts such as "Stay" bellow with such a moodiness and such bulbous bass detail that you have to stop and catch your breathe. Further into the blend again we hit cuts like "Witnessed" where dungeon-destined spaciousness plays the lead role, showing the Chad knows the genre and his craft with an intimacy most artists dream of. Debut albums don't come any clearer. Any further questions should be directed to Chad directly...
