With dubstep being back into such a strong and stable position within the full expansive range of underground dance music, labels like Locus Sound, who has kept the consistency levels so high of late, most certainly need to be praised. This latest four tracker from E S P & Meddem is a perfect example of this consistency as we kick off with slightly trippy arrangement of the title track 'Retrospect', kicking us off with a bit of an unorthodox bang. The eerie flavours continue next as the emptive strings and swampy sub warbles of E S P's 'Keep Searching' drift into earshot, followed by Meddem's 'Softwax', a minimal yet powerful original, focussing on abstract percussive pushes and serious subweight. Finally, 'Stars combines more interesting rhythmic switch ups and an acidic synthesizer pulse throughout to put an aquatic feel into this fizzing finale.
