Review: As far as dubstep names on the come up go, there aren't many making as much impressive material as Abstrakt Sonance. After the fantastic response to their first release on dubstep legend Hatcha's imprint 'Hatched', it was only a matter of time before the found themselves ready with a follow up. This EP spans the wide breadth of what dubstep represents sonically, with the more classic, darker arrangements of 'Grave Diggers' and 'War Music' playing pivotal roles. However we also witness more exploratory sound design on the moogy roles of 'Strangers' and the intense triple reeses on '666'. We can't after all of this then forget the electronic masterpiece that is 'Delusional' which features additional production credits from Moxix and Leo Zen.
Review: Now here is a link up we have been looking forward to for a long time indeed, as we see UK dubstep flag flyer: Lost get down with the Deep Dark & Dangerous crew across a top draw four track offering. We kick off our murky journey with the punchy bass pummels of 'General Dub', before getting sent to the shredder amidst the explosive synth patterns of 'Bazurk', alongside Wevaman. Next up, we get gritty across the distorted moogy madness of 'Helios', before rounding up the project with some rawcus reese run outs on throughout 'Vulcan', putting the finishing touches on a very solid body of work.
Review: Substantial Audio have been on a wicked run of late, bringing out some super tasty dub music for us all to enjoy. They here continue that trend as they bring forward four tracks of pure steppers power from Wevaman, kicking off with the super clicky percussive explosions of 'The Sukara', followed by potent LFO movements of 'Castle Dub' and then the super dubwise reverberations of 'Bunny Glitch'. We then finish up in serious style as the flavours take an even more melodic twist on 'Coconutz', a wavy composition packed with expansive chord movements and wicked drum work.
