Yet another deep dub talent to emerge from New Zealand; Akcept builds up the fire lit by FKOF hype late last year with three more distinctive low-end lickings. "Madman" rolls with a funk that very few deep dub tracks aim for but can't quite achieve. As Akcept proves; it's all in the swing and timing of the percussion. Those after a more immersive wash of sonics should jump on "Transit" while those looking for a stepped out, flute-wooing, time-signature gamechanger jump on "Forgotten". Time to Akcept our fate...
One of New Zealand's most outstanding dubstep producers Akcept has the honour to follow up heavyweights DBridge and Nomine on Youngsta's very own Sentry Records. The Tempa-affiliated legend established his record label earlier this year and is dedicated to present nothing but the finest content spanning across from different genres and styles he truly loves. Nevertheless this next and third instalment, due to release on the 6th of October 2017, holds down two brilliant 140 bpm clashers once again. Both "Dreader Than Dread", a rather dub influenced single, as well as "Howl" which covers the lower end, are a legitimate and respectable nod to the soundsystem culture.
Averted Vision are wasting no time in getting their singular strain of bass music on the map and, thanks to this second collaborative EP, we're getting to know even more talents from the Kiwi land. Ebb's "Cheshire Break", as the name implies, is a distorted and wonderfully loose bundle of sonics tied together by a detuned jungle break at its core, while "Trigger" by Embargo is just some straight-up dubstep nastiness with a grimey touch. Lowquid & Bokeh team up for the percussive missile that is "Signal", but "Sewer Rat" from Akcept is what catches our attention - it's the breaks, you see, they just work every single time...
