Wow. Just wow. Just when you thought dubstep couldn't get murkier, shoutier and gnarlier, two of the scene's largest characters collide for one of the tune's most uncompromising tunes this year. Just listen to that vocal chant and tell us it hasn't inspired you to jump 20 feet tall and growl like an ambush of tigers. "Cadi" is just as moody but with added depth and mysticism as a belly-chanted call to prayer echoes with prominence and dominance. "Nebulizer" completes the package, and does so with alien mischief thanks to its barbed mechanical groove and interplanetary whooshes and washes. Somebody say 'mental business!'
Released October 2012, "Somebody Say" was easily one of dubstep's grimiest, meanest bangers. Living up to the Hench brand values, audio doesn't get much more aggressive. Well, until now that is as Subzee D has given the original a bullet proof coat of inch-thick metal. Spiked out and savage, this is next level nasty. Lost, meanwhile, subverts the vibe with a deeper, more heads-down approach as the bass gurgles with a lower range of distortion and the cut up vocals cause more of a hypnotic effect. As Pokes says himself, this one will cause serious murder in the dance. Massive.
