You know what’s great right now? The way that a lot of underground house producers have started to adopt the dark spaciousness of classic dubstep.
London’s Fis-T, Germany’s JTRP and France’s Jay Weed are making music at house tempo with piercing hi-hats, echoing basslines and tons of blank canvas – not to mention the odd wobble – and we’re all over it.
Here Jay Weed, whose ‘Prism’ will be the next 12” on Oneman’s 502 Recordings label, takes ‘Follow’, by the may-or-may-not-actually-be-Basque troop Crystal Fighters, and stretches it out into something that sounds like someone melted a DMZ record into the bottom of a lake.
