The Inyoka EP

GourmetBeats009

Inyoka’s Gourmetbeats EP is decidedly not a political record. It’s a dubstep record. Still, music doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and, in the context of current affairs at the time of the release, it’s difficult not to imagine the minimal, melancholy masterpiece as an antidote to present political...

Bisweed – Baby EP

FKOF Review

These days, the evolution of dubstep is a touchy topic. Despite the clickbait headlines periodically spewed by pop-EDM muckrakers, the genre is not dead — contrarily, the 140 sound has a more powerful global presence now than ever before.

Out and About this weekend…

Funnily enough, the last Out and About post I wrote preceded me blowing my eardrum (and putting myself out of action for almost a month) at the beginning of the year. Hopefully that's not a situation I'll be repeating anytime soon – but it is that time again. This weekend's got some beauties lined...
