5.0 out of 5 stars A clubstep classic., 14 Jan 2013
This review is from: Fabriclive 37 (Audio CD)
Now 6 years on from the original release, this record serves as a reminder of what once was in the dingy clubs of east central London. This is an introspective album in just about every way. It is a shout out for a scene which celebrated originality with conformity. It blends a mix of club sounds with the trademark lo-fi sub sounds that dominated London during the late naughties. Its theme is egocentric, a remark upon the genres growing popularity among the electronic underground venues at the time of its release. Its sound is huge, bombastic, intimidating and eclectic. The mix is not of the best quality (messrs Caspa and Rusko were probably far to out of it on the night to really expand on their sounds on the decks) but this shouldn't, and probably won't, matter to anyone who isn't a DJ. The list of songs is undeniably amazing. Why bother editing them any more than they have? Soo many classics of the genre to be found and some lesser known but still cracking tracks to fill the gaps. This collection is not only a seminal work from two of the most important producers involved in bringing Dubstep to a wider audience, but also a timeless celebration of a moment when these and like minded producers felt invincible. True oldschool steppas may discredit it for being too commercial. Let them. This is what resulted from organic populism and creativity in the genre. And its nothing short of brilliant...
