I’ve not heard this fella before but looking at what Clint wrote about his last release for Brainfeeder he makes music which falls somewhere between Bristol hip-hop and dubstep. Well now he’s on Ninja Tune, and seems to be making music which falls somewhere between Bristol hip-hop and dubstep, with the emphasis on the dubsteppy side. This is the chilled out Burial-ish side of dubstep, though, not the in-yer-face stuff peddled by the likes of Digital Mystikz...although I just compared it to Burial in front of Phil and his immediate response was that it’s “nothing like Burial”, so there you go. It’s definitely very dubstep-influenced, though, and in the non-aggressive slightly coffee-table way, but still quite beaty and not too drifty.
I’ve always been a little dubstep-resistant so I’m not exactly the greatest person to ask about this stuff anyway. ‘The Gun’ has got some really rumbly deep vocals that remind me a little bit of Tricky, and ‘Dead Dogs’ plays around very effectively with some live drum sounds, and closer ‘Ghosst(s)’ has some fantastic-sounding bowed double bass sounds going on and probably the album’s most interesting moment comes right at the end when it flops into some slow and trippy washed out dub-minimal weirdness. All in all it’s pretty listenable and laid back with plenty of tunes and some interesting textures. Not bad at all.
