Dubstep kingpin N-Type isn't exactly short of credits. Apart from absolutely killing it on each and every tune he releases, the man has been a pillar to the dubstep scene over the last ten years; he was there at the start, and is still proudly twisting those low-ends a decade later, after the move away from the genre's traditional sound and into the realms of what we now call 'bass'. This new EP comes out on Wheel & Deal, another big player in the dubstep scene, and they drop five mega-bad cuts by the man; the vibes are wonky and deranged, particularly on the opener "Ruff Flavours", but also on tracks like "Kore" and "Boom Blast". This is straight-up nastiness, the sort of dubstep they don't make anymore. Go easy.
Pretty much leading the line for Devon's insular bass scene, Skinzmann is back on Titanium Audio with a bruising shot of curbside grime carrying the illest of flows. Riding shotgun in the big-room grime machine blasting out sinister horns are Mr Traumatik, Dizzle Kid and Devilman, all spitting some absolute fire. We don't want to get all cliche and that, but this sounds like the sort of gear that is hard to find these days; the sort of material 'they don't make anymore'. This is an all-out machine-gun attack from the crew, and you get the parts for good measure. BIG BOY BUSINESS.
