Drop/Dead "Basic State"
- Words: James Eaton
Here's a fresh slice of brooding, dubstep-ian soundscapes from London's Drop/Dead. Slightly reminiscent of the thunder and rainfall on Burial's new Kindred EP, "Basic State" employs a steadily knocking beat, a nearly inaudible synth melody, and a dark-as-night bassline to drive its slow groove home. It reminds us how nice it is every time we hear something new from the tunesmith, so if you're in the market for more of Drop/Dead's handiwork, look no further than the solid mix he dropped for Vienna's Danceteria, after the jump.
