Roight you lot! Last one from me is a newie from Dusk & Blackdown, the understated naughty puppies of dubstep. Basically doing what Shackleton is but 3 years ago, these boyz are ahead of the game. The latest on Keysound is a 2 header, 'Focus' & 'Akkaboo'. Focus is one of those dubby, morphing technoid steppers with some ace symphonic Derek May-esque synths on that'd make it a perfect mate with the Peverelist 'Infinity..' 12" from a few weeks ago that I still can't keep my grubby fingers off whenever I want a vinyl hit (like, duh! every minute duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude) The flip is a downtempo broken breaks number with some manipulated African chants & an early Autechre bassline that utterly grabs you after a couple of minutes. It sounds to these ears like a boundary pusher all in all. In fact all their stuff demands repeated listens. I implore you to check these guys out if you like the Skull Disco or Hyperdub stuff, or just interesting, rhythmic electronica!
