After slaying the competition in the early days of dubstep, Oris Jay does the honorable thing for the non-vinyl heads and sets about uploading some gems from his Darqwan moniker. This visceral set of bangers employs Jays quintessentially deft handling of breakbeats in a 140 context and plenty of grinding synth action with none of the tackiness. In the spirit of jungle "Metro" kicks off on a sweet melodic lead in before the nastiness whips up an instant storm. "Jacks New Swing" meanwhile goes more outwardly into a jazzy breaks headspace, creating a seriously ruff kind of broken beat that would have scared West London back in the day. "Cold Symptoms" rounds things off with an assured strike, hitting hard without getting too fancy or clever about it while sporting equally immaculate production.
