Joseph Chapman To call it dubstep is to reduce this album to an association... Clearly what Chord Marauders have done is establish a genre entirely of their own, broad in style and influence, and consistent with the underground DJ tradition. Many mixes and new sounds to be found here. Favorite track: Spread-Aus.

Camryn Marquez This has got to be one of the best and most authentic displays of dubstep mastery. The synths are extremely warm and melodic and the drums powerful and complex but smooth. There is a lot of appreciation, timelessness, and idiosyncrasy to be found on this album. I can't extol the virtues of this young man enough. Check this out; it's so much greater than the sum of its parts. It's an ode- a la je nais se qois- to that raw U.K. garage sound. Completely disagree with Joseph's opinion, btw. This is most-definitely dubstep with some well incorporated influences from other genres; it's not reductive to call it so and doesn't do a disservice to the music, it's dumb to think it does. Look at the genre tags that the artist chose, read the interviews about how they describe their own musical sound-- one word: dubstep, a genre that is around 140 bpm, electronic and contains the most remnants of the U.K. Garage sound. It's not reductive to point out what style of music this clearly is. It's reductive to assume that by doing so you've somehow robbed the music of innovation, ingenuity, and vibrancy. Favorite track: Wellsprung.

about

Introducing Geode's highly anticipated second album, Beluga. The 13-track LP explores themes that are familiar to the London-based producer: cluster chords, p-funk hi-synths and subdued '90s garage aesthetics. But this work feels more dissonant and perhaps even darker than his earlier catalogue, with a greater emphasis on club sonics. Dropping in digital formats on May 11th and now available to pre-order.
