Egoless – Empire of Dirt

Proper. Lanky and loose, knuckle dragging, lumber step that somehow calibrates the right amount of abstract with ultra heavy weight groove and pitched low syrupy percussion oozing in the reverb. I love the way the beat in ‘Avet’ just cuts out completely half way through (2:32) to deliver deep exhales of near catatonic baked perfection.

Markee Ledge/Youngsta: Industrial (Artikal Music)

You know exactly what to expect with “single-minded” Mr. Plod; and no-one ever mentions him or his output without mentioning that, let’s be honest (which is just another scenester way of saying what exactly? You tell me hehe?)

Rigid, unwavering dubstep; typically functional, everything exactly where it should be, and where you expect it to be. It’s super solid, it bumps, you nod your head, you listen to the shorn and stripped minimalist aesthetic and then you move on. Until next time.

Diggerz: Esoteric (Untied)

 

Parisian sub fusionists (not to be confused with Slovenia’s Dub Diggerz!) give it some tight’n’hard, locked down, metronome, hoods-up business. ‘Public Nuisance’ is probably the coldest tune; gliding through the rain soaked streets, random looting and burning going down, hunting Replicants again kind-of-vibe. Just another night in the dystopian Megacity.
