Having had one of his most successful years to date during 2011, releasing the immense ‘Falling’ on Island Records, dubstep stalwart DJ Distance kicks off 2012 on his own beloved Chestplate imprint to assert his grip on the scene he’s played such a large part in shaping since its inception. Heading up CHST016 is longtime sparring partner and Chestplate affiliate Tunnidge, who as ever gets ready to drop some seriously dangerous aural artillery on us. Get ready, speaker’s gonna shake!
‘Aftershock’ rolls out hard! A seemingly short intro of eerie pads and blip fx give way to one hell of a barrage of bass that’ll have you wincing with pleasure as it rattles your ribcage and forces you to submit. Raw, analogue sounding, distorted but punching dubstep that takes no prisoners. Essential dance floor dynamite.
Flipping over and Tunnidge is joined by Distance on ‘Blame’, a deep brooding slab of bass music that won’t fail to move you. Cinematic soundscapes abound as it kicks off, setting the scene perfectly. Whispered vocals, industrial palettes of percussion and a sinister seeping riff make for a drop into a classy piece of rootsy dubstep that sits perfectly on a label that always stays true to the cause. One for the soldiers.
