Review: When it comes to long-form dubstep projects, it is often easy to get bogged down, with a lot of producers wanting to write the same track over and over again 12 times. Off-Switch Audio however have provided us with a very special project indeed as they welcome Nuboid's outstanding 'Nomad' LP. From the intense soundscapes of 'Authority', and sweeping eastern flute melodies of 'Shuji', to the grimey reese lines of 'Relic', this project showcases an incredible level of versatility from start to finish. Our highlights from this one have to include the pleasing reversed-string melodies and smooth drum work of 'Shizen', alongside the plucky arpeggios and unpredictable rhythmic switch ups of 'Flash'. We would highly recommend listening through this one on long play!
Review: Launched in 2017 with a free compilation and a cheeky limited 12, new London label Off-Switch Audio hit Junodownload with their inaugural digital single from London new gen bass sculptor Nuboid: "Rezonate". Resonating with serious feels, the original is loaded with space and emotion as we glide through a wavy, halftime soundscape that's rich in pads and minor keys. Remix-wise label mates Six Sunsets add a thundering grime beat to the mix while Sam ULG flips the cathedral mode with a towering piece of sad theatre that's reminiscent of Joker at his deepest and most sensitive.
