"Dreamy and refined, a must for the after-hours."
Various Disciple Alliance Vol. 1 3 Despite being created in the bedrooms of London’s suburbs and tested in the bowels of dark, smoke-infused clubs, a large faction of the dubstep sound and scene is now very much US dominated, and with that it brings less savoury trappings.

Whilst the rest have been stuck a little in the rigidity of the halfstep template, Sleeper has been really pushing the sonic scaffolding in his last few releases, and this is no different — moody, poly-rhythmical and industrial textures abound, but still with a swagger that will bruk a dancefloor.
Catchy, mid-tempo, electro disco three-track EP from young London-based producer, Kiwi. Features a remix from label boss, Duke Dumont. One for the Blitz/Nag Nag Nag wouldabeens.
