Stealth likes his bass large and that's what you're going to get in his eagerly awaited EP on Subtitles. Ramping things up from the off with a serious minimal meltdown, "Dire Staights" featuring Stylus has all the acrid bass and raw, beaten-to-an-inch-of-their-life drums you could ever wish for. Continuing this pattern, "Deep Inside" and "Silent Dream" drill further down into skull-pulverising bass pressure and classy break-ridden rhythms despite being from opposite ends of the drum and bass spectrum. As a mature producer you can't say fairer than this: Dire Straights is an accomplished, balls-out smasher of an EP created by a man who truly knows his craft. Don't sleep on this, it means serious business.
