New electronic music here from Rinse FM veteran and one of the founding fathers of UK bass, Plastician. This one will definitely treat all you bassheads out there right. The Plastician remix of "Lightspeed" is available now on Beatport.
The Trouble & Bass imprint recently dropped a pretty massive 7-track EP with Plastician. Have a listen. It kicks off with “Bad Like Us” (and its instrumental version, “Retro”). First appearing on Trouble & Bass' Christmas compilation in 2011 and featured on the Get Darker compilation “This is Dubstep 2011”, this track gets reworked with a terrific vocal by London MC Doctor, who goes mental over an infectious grime beat slapped up with tons of old-skool rave vibes. Instant rewind, trusssss! Plastician also teams up with Doctor for the smoky foundation dubstep of “Rebel Music,” which features serious ragga chat over deep beats and bass that will have you reaching for the chalice. A must for reggae heads!
The rest of the EP is devoted to mysterious and minimal instrumental grime numbers. “Elixir” is an MC favorite thatʼs often been played on Plasticianʼs radio show—a haunted and squelchy melody laid atop skanking reggae flavors and hiccupping percussion. Deadweight handclaps and a videogame feel outdo the competition on the seriously heavy “Pwned,” while “Senate” ends this match with a roundhouse kick of wistful grime strings over a deep drums and bass.
