Marking his debut release for the Gradient Audio label, Time Difference marks out M.A.K.Z. as a producer with a singular take on dubstep that maintains a classic approach but takes it out of the shadows at the same time. "Aura" displays this perfectly, with its combination of unwinding beats and meandering, elastic melodies and eastern string plucks, while "Time Difference" positively explodes with lightning on the drop of every kick and snare and "Vitreous" combines jittery percussion and heavy dub textures alongside its growling undercurrent. Jafu rounds things off with his remix of the title track, adding more in the way of subbass to increase the pressure. Highly recommended.
