Boston's AXH is increasingly in the spotlight when it comes to deep, raucous dubstep vibes and, perhaps because he's from the other side of the pond, his material just seems to have something fresh and alluring about it - not to hype it up or anything! After a killer appearance on London's TEMPA not too long ago, the bad badboy runs two new dope tunes on the impressive Duploc imprint. "Witch doctor" blows a menacing, cosmic array of bass tones over a dismantled percussion beat, slamming all over the place like it's 2006, while "Lionart" takes some inspiration from the ragga school of thought in delivering its dutty, wobbling swarm of bass over deep, mystical roots vibes. Heavy.
While we understand that it has more to do with a dogged mind and a dedication to producing wild-eyed dubstep and breakbeats, we've always thought that Binary's name doesn't quite do the man's music the right justice. To us, it sounds wide and uncontrollable, an almost 3D aesthetic to its wages of bass and percussion. The producer is up on Encrypted Audio with a bag of new cuts under the ENC25D banner, a four-pronged mood setter to please the heads and nudge the dancers. From the echoes of "Infirmary Dub" to the cavernous pits of "Trangression", Binary's output kicks down the doors and leaves no surivivors, which is a good thing if you're dealing in hazardous levels of sub tones travelling through the air like bullets. BAD.
