The Weekly Buzz – 16/07/2018

Hailing from the city of Bristol, producer, DJ and label founder Chad Dubz unleashes his new EP ‘Wisdom’ this week, the latest addition to a growing catalogue on Austrian bass music label Sub Audio (SUBA003). ‘Wisdom EP‘ comes locked and loaded with two of Chad Dubz‘ finest productions; sound system orientated beats rooted in the foundations of the genre, plus a remix from dubstep’s man of the moment Hebbe, fresh from two huge releases on Artikal Music and Crucial Recordings.

Chad Dubz dives straight into a meditative flex on this 12″ with the EP’s title track. Starting low key, the track rolls through with carefully arranged yet impactful low end under atmospheric swells and genre defining chord stabs. As the track progresses, ‘Wisdom‘ subtly transforms from a laid back wistful track to one with more intrigue with the addition of slight jungle-esque breaks and faint wailing vocals aligning with the on going swelling pads amongst other additions to the soundscape. On the flip, ‘Stuck In The Loop‘ really gets down to business taking a darker turn, most noticeably with the constant reverberating low end frequencies and lingering chords filled with dread, destined to cause damage on any sound system. As expected, Dutch mastermind Hebbe reconstructs ‘Stuck In The Loop‘ to great affect, transforming an already solid cut into a certified necking breaking dance floor banger that’s currently a personal favourite of mine.

‘Wisdom EP’ (SUBA003) is out on the 20th July and available from the Sub Audio Bandcamp.
