501, AKA, Jussi Leväsalmi, is a producer from Uusimaa, Finland who has been breaking down the boundaries of dubstep with some fresh and exciting releases for the likes of Red Volume Records, Subway Records, Off Road and Shiva Soundsystem. Now arriving on Z Audio, the talented producer delivers more streetwise rhythms and raw low end blended into bassline driven controlled mayhem on his latest release, "Beast Within." The title track sees distorted synths staggering along beneath tight beats and some tension-stirring melodies. B Side, "Back Up" is a slower, more breakbeat influenced rider that even includes a Spanish guitar melody!
Bringing in the reggae flavours to the funky, hip-shaking track "Test Me", Depone gets off to a great start in this three track EP on Zed Audio. Falling into a bonafide dubstep riddim with whomping subs and compelling melody, the track progresses until we move on to "Cellular Structure", up next, which has a more Caspa style feel to it, with swaggering bassline, taught SFX and smacking snares. Final track "Sensi Riddim" pairs hectic, Doctor P style high pitched squeals and ditties with bashing beats and whirring mid range, bringing the EP to a dizzying climax.
