Since his debut release on Dub Police back in 2008, Subscape has come a long way, quickly emerging as one of the most exciting young talents to come out of the dubstep scene. We are extremely proud to announce that he is returning stronger than ever with a brand new EP showcasing a decisive evolution in his sound. Kicking off the EP is the anthemic 'Turn Me On', a track built to cause havoc on any dancefloor. The dynamic combination of ecstatic synth lines and mechanized bass tones fuse together with the swinging snare hits to harness a new energy in Subscape's music. 'Square Albert' takes this energy and twists it on its head with galloping percussion and colourful rave-inspired synths before bursting into double time drum lines and shooting off in a new direction. 'Universal' is a step into the future carried by a gargantuan wave of bass pressure as the alien lead synth line soars high into the atmosphere and the growling bassline and destructive snares force the track home. Rounding off the vinyl package, 'Apple Candy' takes things deeper with seductive strings, yearning vocal samples and synth lines. With an ever-growing list of international bookings stretching out before him and a growing arsenal of music, it looks like his journey is only just beginning and we are proud to be a part of it. Watch this space!
This format is 3x12" Vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with the full 11 track CD inside. Dub Police are proud to announce the release of their first artist album courtesy of Birmingham-based producer Emalkay, who is set to release his hotly anticipated debut LP 'Eclipse' this Spring. First making a name for himself with early releases on his own Morphic Sounds imprint, Emalkay has continued to push the boundaries of underground bass music ever since, delivering a slew of huge releases on the way. Having been an integral part of the Dub Police stable ever since his 'Explicit / Heroics' 12" for the label in 2009, Emalkay has gone from strength to strength with a series of heavyweight tracks that includes the phenomenal 'When I Look At You' and recent smash 'Crusader'. Comprised of 11 tracks, 'Eclipse' is a bold and powerful album encapsulating perfectly everything that makes Emalkay such a prodigious talent, effortlessly showcasing the depth and diversity of his sound while always remaining true to his inimitable style. As addictive as it is hard-hitting, the album doesn't just provide a collection of dancefloor tracks, but a confident and coherent artistic statement. A brilliantly confident and varied debut album, 'Eclipse' is set to cement Emalkay's place as one of the biggest and most exciting producers working in bass music today.
One of heaviest 12" of this year from Dubpolice. This is the 46th release from the vinyl giants and it belongs to Emalkay with Crusader (Levels) & Power Tool on the flip. This is definitely one that everyone is trying to get their hands on and will be bagged on sight!
As anyone will know, Dub Police is one of the dubstep scene's leading labels, having helped launch the careers of artists like Caspa and Rusko into the dance music stratosphere. The label's ethos has always been about giving the next generation a step up and the next wave of superstar producers has arrived as the Dub Police war machine continue to roll ever onward towards world domination. Trolley Snatcha is the latest artist to receive the Dub Police stamp of approval with his diverse four-tracker the 'One Trick Pony' EP. Proving that he is anything but, Trolley turns out a selection of tunes that display a mature and open-minded approach to dubstep. From the ear-battering Trolley trademarks that litter 'Pass Me By' and 'Rocco's Revenge' to the smoothed out bliss of 'Always On My Mind' and the light techno touches of 'We Go Deep', this EP will grab the attention of anyone with a keen ear for quality music. DJ Support: Caspa, Rusko, Skream, The Others and Benga.
Following the same vibes as Conquests 'Forever' (as featured on LTT Part 3), South London's LD comes with this deep track that has found its way in to sets from the likes of Mala, Chef and Caspa, to name just a few. Tribal beats with hints of amen breaks floating in and out and pounding deep bass that shuffles along in typical LD style. SubScape's 'Tomahawk' is an absolutely outstanding track from one of dubstep's rising stars. This one has been battered by the likes of Caspa, Rusko, The Scratch Perverts, N-Type, The Others and Reso just to name a few. Heavy stomping beats and a tension building intro lay the way for the tear-out bass that follows - a proper serious big tune from the West London newbie.
Kicking off part 5 of the series are Dub Police regulars. The Others with one serious riddim in 'Everybody Do The Superskank'. Bone crushing, mechanical beats and snarling basslines are in order with eerie soundscapes and a super catchy synth. Guaranteed to tear down any dance - think Robocop on steroids. L-Wiz, Dub Police's answer to Abba - yet again manage to deliver an absolutely mind blowing and spine tingling track, that will send tingles down your spine. 'Amy Diamond' is carried along by a loose beat, warm bass, and beautiful synths and melodies in typical mesmerising L-Wiz fashion. Scandinavian counterparts Dubwoofa round off the EP with the seriously dark 'Nightmares', which makes black metal sound like nursery rhymes with its erie soundscapes, tribal beats, dark warping bass and hints of atmospheric pianos.
The mighty Dub Police machine rolls on, this time with Londoner D1 making his label debut, having previously been involved with Tempa. His style has been described as heavily house-influenced dubstep and here were find him tackling Conquests' chilled anthem 'Forever' (from Dub Police # 15) for a similarly laid back remix.
