Mix: Top Story: Dubstep May Mix – WTF is Post-Dubstep? (Part II)

In the past few months the bass scene has shown no sign of losing creativity as artists both new and established continue to challenge the loose dubstep template and twist it into weird configurations.

This month’s mix catches up with what is happening on the peripheries and draws attention to artists like Lapalux and Asa who operate on the hazy intersection of 140 BPM music and lo-fi electrionica. Elsewhere on the mix Kahn channels Massive Attack’s brooding vocals while LV show off their unpredictable grooves on Primary Colours from the excellent new LP as well as the fantasic remix of Kevin McGhee’s ‘Get in with You’.

One of the most exciting new developments is the emergence of the dark house sound which sneaks into the second half with Lone’s late night reinterpretation of the classic ‘Kinetic’ while Punch Drunk‘s latest signee Andy Mac delivers a bouncey shuffle on ‘Asteroid Belt’. Closing the mix is an inspired meeting of two of this year’s most promising producers with Midland’s remix of ‘Ask Yourself’, originally by Julio Bashmore. The Leeds based artist takes advantage of the eerie atmospheres and constructs an even darker track, bringing out the best elements of both producers. Enjoy!

    I believe it’s Kevin McPhee’s “Get In With You”, not Kevin McGhee
