Four slabs of thoroughbred soundsystem dubstep from Londoner Alive on Dubtribu: "Stepping" sets the tone with its molten low-end creating an ultimately funky, slippery experience, "Murda" follows and is more on the straight-up dungeon business flex with big dubby echoes on the stabs and rim shots. "Native Wolf" develops both themes with a rolling drum arrangement and a vocal textures that becomes an overwhelming foggy lead element before the buried, muddied skanks break through the thick mists. Finally we hit "Sensi Dub". A lighter exploration of contemporary dub, the reflective light shimmers from every processed guitar strum while the strings ooze cinematic drama with subtle but persistent charm. Complete with a VIP of "Native Wolf", this ticks myriad boxes.
