Review: Dank N Dirty make a wicked return to the fray here as they bring together the services of BNML and Volume A for a scorching two track creation, one we couldn't wait to get stuck into. We begin with the dubwise textures of 'Electric 88' which takes moogy bass tones and layers them amongst ominous horn structures and airy chord progressions, creating a real sense of dread. On the flip we are given 'Into Reality', a real trip into the dungeon as course layers on growling reese bass textures lead the way alongside mellow sub movements and dubbed out background percussion. Overall, an awesome combination of futuristic dubstep stylings and a classic dubwise use of space.
Review: The levels have been set very high in recent months by the Macabre Unit team, who continue to provide the 140 scene with the highest quality dubstep originals on a regular basis. Lampa and Volume A are the latest to join the roster, giving us four spicy originals ot play with, kicking off with the raucous reese slaps and tidy percussive influxes of the title track 'Talkback'. Lampa is then joined by the magnificent Monika Emat, who provides some sumptuous vocal work over the haunting sounds of 'What's Mine', before 'Today' sees Volume A return on collaboration duty for a super spooky soundscape. Finally, Volume A takes up solo duty on 'Sound Effect', a more stripped back yet intense dubstep design, putting the finishing touches on a great selection!
Review: After 18 months of silence, Versed rises from its sleep with an energised album-sized air. Leaning over the future precipice even further than before, the whole collection reeks of innovation and rule-free drama. The cosmic digidub of "Slept On", the scaly drones and off-beat parps of "Cabin", the mischievous wobbles and spacious funk of "Don't Talk", the tripped out vocal cuts and pranged out bass zaps of "Buddha" are just some of the many highlights on offer here... Dig deep and digest - this more than makes up for lost time!
Review: We are extremely excited to get into this one as Volume A & Section 8 team up for a dubstep-inspired party, kicking off with eastern melodies and gnarly, growling synthesizer work of Volume A's 'Stuck Inside'. This is followed by the spacey tones and expansive atmospheric layers of Section 8's aptly named 'Hubble', before the pair join forces on 'Psychosis', another grizzly roller. Finally, the pair work together again on 'Scared', which through it's unique drum designs and engulfing sub expansions, puts the cherry on the cake for this EP with Dirty Beats Music.
