Within UK dance music's expansive circles, there are few who have offered as much as Scuba over the years, who here returns to his beloved Hotflush household for a stunning new project by the name of 'In Retrograde'. This project sees him traverse a complete spectrum of electronic music, with a half time dubstep feel being the central yarn in its tapestry. From the distorted utterings of 'Buzzsaw' and funky inspired flavours of 'Gyroscope' to the more soundscape led compositions of 'Entrospect' and 'Ants', this project boasts a wealth of musical expertise, showcasing a depth of dubstep influences and offshoots.
What a year the guys at Infernal Sounds are having eh? This release serves as a testament to the momentum the team's release roster has build up as 'Origin' lets us explore the deepest and darkest corners of the dubstep phenomenon. We are blessed with a top draw line up, with original recordings coming from the likes of DE-TU, Perverse, Saule and many more heavyweight faces. For us, one of the standouts has to come with Von D's return, on the laid back LFO rolls and glitchy chord stabs of 'Finis Gloriae Mundi'. Other highlights include stepper's favourite Sepia with his two potent originals in 'Remember' and 'Awaken', along with Karnage's smooth collaboration with Rider Shafique on 'Realise'.
