Foamplate - Lionize
Proper, proper dubstep cuts inna 06 style from Foamplate on Vivek’s System label.
Those that follow the label output and the club night of the same name will be well aware that low end is of the utmost importance and the A-side here is a right bass-bin bruiser. Dangerous half stepping drums with that haunting space roll out in fine style, immediately reminding us of some of the earlier Tempa cuts.
The flip - ’696’ is a little more on the wonky side, a mean triplet arrangement frames an almost Joker-esque arp that gives way pensive keys and some serious bassline acrobatics.
No nonsense, no frills, no gimmicks - proper eyes down gear for proper heads - it’s deadly.
