While much of the dubstep I’ve heard this year has been self-cannibalising crap, there’s still the odd pocket of resistance in the genre if you look (hard). Take Bristol’s Peverelist who is one of those producers doing the right thing and mixing the distinctive positives of dubstep with early 90s ambient electronica wigouts. Well that’s what the near nine minute ‘Infinity Is Now’ sounds like; some hybrid between techno/ dubstep and Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2. Groovy.
In other news, Merriweather Post Pavilion is really fucking good. Thank fuck. 🙂
