Dubstep gets its breakthrough sound,
This review is from: Diary of An Afro Warrior (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am not a great fan of dubstep, but occassionally you get artists who climb above the limitations of their genre to take their sound to a wider audience like Roni Size for drum and bass, Benga is such an artist.
The opening track on Diary of an Afro Warrior Zero M2 sounds feels like AIR doing a detroit-style techno track and others reminded me of artist such as Sabres of Paradise, Autchre, LFO and Juan Atkins. In common with most electronic albums it doesn't have a unifying concept, but somehow all the tracks work together with some dark but yet not sinister vibes.
I am not going to say that this is the best album in the world ever, but I am glad I left my musical prejudices and pressed play.
