Review: Badman Studios appear to have unearthed a bit of a gem with this one as Grawinkel unveils four tracks of blistering dubstep fire. We kick off with the quack-like lead synthesizer pulls of 'Lock Off', kicking us off with high energy from the off, followed by 'Between', which jolts between haunted woodwind and grizzly underlying sub designs. The energy levels are then upped again as the spooky harmonies of the title track Reflection from Grawinkel & Pillow is let loose, before The Boy & The Sine get involved on the tribal 8 bit soundscapes of 'Awe'. Amazing work!
Review: Oh Sepia, Sepia, Sepia, the man who takes dubstep to a completely new plane of existence is back it yet again with another stunning four track experience courtesy of Badman Studios. The title track 'Sanctuary' sets us off in good fashion, providing us with one of the wonkiest originals we have ever heard here at JunoDownload, slapping together floaty beat stops and clicky percussion from the off. From here we manoeuvre into the electronic playgrounds of 'Danger Zone', followed by the unpredictable synthesizer switch ups and ascending basslines of 'Gradients'. Finally, 'Step Back' delivers something completely different from the rest of the EP as a combination of sweeping bass growls and old school wobbles combine over minimal drums to see us out in style.
