We’re on a Journey

8 Feb

It feels like you are with me in developing taste into tracks which are on the very periphery of dubstep. I like this a lot. I think it’s good that the horizons are expanding – more awesome is always good even if it’s about the bass instead of the guitars that we’re all more comfortable with.

Jamie Woon – Spirals

Jamie Woon is the absolute master of this kind of thing. Once again, after Blue Truth and Night Air he’s at it again! The marriage of the gentle acoustic guitars with the bassy undertones is a match made in heaven. The album, Mirrorwriting is due out in April, and I for one can’t wait!

Jack Peñate – Pull My Heart Away (Jamie xx Remix, Featuring Theophilus London)

It’s rare for even two artists this good to combine, so three in one is a real treat. The vocals are really tight to the warped bassy take on Jack Peñate, which true to style, Jamie xx has provided. Although it’s almost unrecognisable from the original, some of the best elements, such as the swooning chorus are kept… everything in this song is in the right proportions – and that’s what helps to make it good.

Scuba – Before (Deadboy Remix)

Deadboy is one of the more successful purveyors of ‘post-dubstep’ – in other words people outside of South London have heard of him. I first came across him with his fantastic reworking of Drake/Alicia Keys but this Scuba remix is pretty good too.

Damian Marley, Eve & Stephen Marley – You Don’t Love Me (No No No)

Aha, I’m not particularly proud of posting this one! But we’re all allowed one or two guilty pleasures, are we not? This reggae track is one of mine – it’s catchy as hell too…
