Darknet/Shake The Foundations - Indiji - Uprise Audio

Uprise Audio returns with yet another solid release, this time from newcomer - Indiji. Having already caused a stir with his first release on Uprise Audio's last compilation with 'Machine Dread', Indiji is back with his first solo venture.

This two track EP is a masterclass in how to produce minimal dubstep with a modern twist. Each element seems extremely well considered, no part is more important than the other, and each has a large amount of its own space to work in and make itself heard - I guess that's the meaning of a good mixdown! To us, one thing that really stands out are just the snares though - these aren't brash, just-off peaking 200hz head smackers, but more just elements of the mix and parts of a whole - something you very rarely hear these days.

The EP is a great first release, in that it shows exactly what Indiji's about - hazed out, minimalistic sub shakers. Both tracks ooze style and character, something that harks back to the early days of dubstep when every artist had a unique signature sound that singled them out from the rest. What I mean is - you hear a Distance tune, or a Benga tune or a Loefah beat - and you know who produced it within the first 5 seconds of the tune. I think this is something that's been missing from dubstep for a while, and it seems to be something Uprise understand. Wayfarer's tribal beats, Klax's tech-y approach to beats and basslines, and Asylum's drum & bass-like approach to mixing all set them apart from the crowd, which is exactly what the scene needs.

'Mass Produced' - SLAVEN - Dub

"Badass... heard it in 'Chestcast Vol.6' and had to get this tune.  So aggressive, with a cool vibe."

Feel the Heat EP - Groundislava - Friends of Friends

I do love myself a bit of Groundislava but I don’t really know or understand what it is exactly that’s made the LA resident go hell-for-leather on channelling his inner ATB. There’s always been a welcome danger that he might take it all too far, but this EP sounds like the music we were dancing to in Rock City in 1999, and we weren’t really so into it then either. At least there were Nottingham girls there...
