And while I’m at it, the new one from Hell Science Dept is cracking. Tough tech-steppy dubstep — not the sweet, soulful shimmer I’m lusting after — I’ve been litening to lots of 80s-vintage Womack and 60s folk-soul recently — but very good nevertheless. And you can get it digitally from Juno for not much cash.
Well, look, yes, I know you can’t download it RIGHT NOW, but you’ll need your copy as soon as the server is back up. Go on. www.riddim.ca. It’s not hard! Maybe barefiles will have it before May. I don’t know. Just use your loaf.
It’s brilliant, of course. The grime / dubstep mix from last year was, as you know, literally inspirational. The new one lacks vocal pressure — less grime — but it kicks like a mule. The re-edits are absolutely breath-taking. Seriously. It’s fairly obviou that my mix and his mix are close bedfellows.
BTW, Dubstep Sufferah is going to be up at Barefiles soon, but feel free to drop by here and get a link from me if you want a link.
We’re getting some love from one of the big men of dubstep blogging and it feels great. Gutterbreakz has caught on to what we’re doing. Cool! And he’s on fire right now, even more than ever… Those posts about his uncle dying and the one of his kids were two of the most affecting blog posts I’ve ever seen.
