Alonzo Hunt, more commonly known as Introspekt, is a producer from Los Angeles. Although you may not have heard of him yet, his sound is sure to resonate with you if you’re a fan of Grime or Deep Dubstep. Introspekt has a distinct sound that feels reminiscent of Eskibeat.

This DNB record which I would deem more “Neuro-Dub” is brilliant, with a true depth to every song, staggering atmospheres and great production.

The latest in the torchlight series is full of surprises and innovations and is a testament to the flourishing re-inventive drum & bass scene.
Dance-floor Dubstep has suffered dreadfully over the last few years and is now finding resurgence almost unexpectedly and against the grain of usual music revivals. A thing demonised to such an extent as Dubstep will find it hard to re-imagine itself, but by combining its mid 2000s aesthetic with new up-to-date elements it will slowly re-insert itself into the British underground zeitgeist. There was always unexplored depth within Dubstep and KOMA seeks to dig out a little bit more.
S280F – MKAU [STYLSS051] Ya’ll like modems? Ever wondered what it would sounds like if your modem became sentient and started trying to chat? Except it wasn’t happy, it was chatting shit, fucking shouting at you, saying it was sick of listening to your dull-ass phone conversations when it could be getting busy online. Well…..WELL…. […]
Nurve – End To A Start LP After a break from written reviews I was thrilled at the opportunity to sink my teeth into veteran electronic producer Nurve’s latest album project ‘End To The Start’. The Macabre Unit flag flyer has been known for his raw, hard hitting creations in whichever genre bracket he feels […]
The Stoke on Trent based label Infernal Sounds welcomes Germans, Causa and Shu to the family with their third imprint to the vinyl only label. With the badman Sepia supplying the weight last time both the newcomers have some pretty big shoes to fill, however the Dubhelmet EP definitely provides everything we have come to […]
The last few weeks have seen a bit of unwelcome drama in the underground dubstep scene; with both accusations of adultery and plagiarism polluting internet forums, Facebook posts and even Soundcloud comments. A focal point of this drama has been the almost fabricated rivalry between US and UK based dubstep; but while the Americans had […]
