I thought I'd give you a slightly different take on minimalism today by sharing a couple of tasty nuggets from the thriving dubstep scene. It's not a genre I claim to know a great deal about but due to experiencing Various Production at the excellent Werk parties in South London then seeing quite a bit of media attention regarding Burial's album I decided to check both LPs out and was suitably impressed with the contents. So rather than rambling on about sparse bottom heavy soundscapes punctuated with dark synth stabs etc etc, I'll just post some tracks and let the music speak for itself. Enjoy.
Burial - Wounder Burial LP (Hyperdub)
Various Production - Hater The World is Gone LP (XL)
You can currently buy both of these albums from Boomkat at rock bottom prices as well as read the (overly enthusiatic) reviews that go with them:
