Album Review

Reviewed 2011-11-14
Understated bass music. I don’t know if there is such a thing as a well-kept secret in the dubstep world, but Pinch and Shackleton have both managed to stay consistently awesome while avoiding the traps of, say, producing Britney’s hit singles. Instead, the two have been working on creating even more forward thinking bass music that puts the ‘bass’ back in the genre label. This surprise album presents 9 cuts of pure low-end goodies with minimalistic percussion and tight productions.
Try: 2, 3, 4, 6
FCC: Clean

1) 6:30 Long intro. Ambient stuff, suspenseful. Transitions to warped horns and middle eastern-ish vocal snippets.
2) 5:23 * Understated rhythms. Tacit percussion, turns into a collage of backwards loops about halfway through before a distant organ kicks in.
3) 6:30 * Heavy stuff on the low-end. Stripped down congas panning from side to side and a soft but mean bass gradually heating it up.
4) 5:22 * Dark and disturbing. Lots of echo, reverb. Rough contrasts between the unsettling bass, rushing hi-hats and Burial-style strings.
5) 5:28 Messed up and kind of creepy. Some sample about a “selfish greedy life” all chopped up and looped.
6) 7:11 * Messy with scrambling percussion. Jumps to gritty delayed synth chords. Tense, dramatic synth action on slow, steady beat.
7) 6:45 Spooky. Complex percussion and ghost-like haunted synth squeaks. Has a slightly softer second half with less weirdness.
8) 6:02 Bells, raw and industrial vibes. Alternates between heavy crunch and minimalistic drum pounding.
9) 6:02 Industrial opening morphs into old school dubstep vibes. Think early Skream, except even more messed up. Also, has some strange choir sample.
