Review: We love us some super clean bass music here at JunoDownload, and that is exactly what we have stumbled upon here as SBSTRD lands on Meanbucket for a twelve track rinseout, exploring multiple different exciting areas of bass as a whole. From the incredible soundscaping of 'Anhedonia' and high energy juke rolls of 'In Love', to the shuffling break drums of 'Coolie Dip' and experimental 140BPM flavours of 'Stop', this one really does take us on one hell of a journey. For us the real stand out single from the whole project had to be the super grimey flips and unpredictable drum arrangements of 'Maxwell Trak', which features Maxwell and promises to give you some serious on-set energy.
Review: It's been a while since we caught a vibe from Dubstep Rotterdam (or its founder Frenk for that matter) but they're making up for lost time in the best way possible here... Three tracks of distinctive dub dynamite, each cut is tailored for peaktime floor fire. "Danger Dub" is a bulbous bounce-off with a Nepali squidge to its bass tone and a kick so reliable you could trust it with your dog. "Evil Dub" is equally demonstrative - all growling basses and switching time signatures, it could throw the most eagle-eared fans off-guard. Finally we hit "Apollo Dub". A much steadier, more authentic dub-minded joint, lean back on its soft skanks and let the low end whisk you away... Welcome back Frenk.
