Last spotted piddling on the BBC's public decency guidelines, producer, DJ, broadcaster, label owner, two-bit animator and all-round Manchester legend Dub Phizix drops two slices of steppy science out of the blue. Both lean and dubby, "Do One" carries one of those mix-friendly riffs on the intro that tease the cascading molten sounding drums (think "I'm A Creator" for 2016) and fit DRS's lyrics perfectly. All tribal and thumpy, "Doberman" is darker again. Ward 21's demonic mic command ensuring certified nightmare dancehall status. Woof woof.
Manchester based Dub Phizix says his OhmGrown series is focused purely on the music and less about industry, releasing his music directly for download from the likes of yours truly - not very long after they've been finished. An addiction to the entire process means the sound design, writing, mixing, mastering and any visuals are done in-house by him - impressive! Part 1 features moments of moody deep dubstep like "Engage", woozy off-kilter drum 'n' bass experienced on "The Waterboy" and of course "Get Fresh" with its truly obese bounce and wobble.
Manchester's finest D&B producer Dub Phizix inaugurates his brand new SenkaSonic label with a pair of tracks that charge as hard as the title suggests. "Buffalo Charge" sees the producer team up with Strategy to deliver a killer piece of forward-thinking D&B filled with colourful melody and soca-tinged rhythms with enough sub-bass to collapse any nearby buildings. "Bounce" sees Dub Phizix flying solo but creating a track with just as much menacing low end, a more straight up banger to complement the playful tone of "Buffalo Charge". Both absolutely smash it - don't sleep.
