Podcast 103: Untold

XLR8R recently took a closer look at U.K. producer Untold (a.k.a. Jack Dunning), whose handful of releases on Hessle Audio, Hotflush, and his own Hemlock imprint have quickly established him among a handful of artists pushing dubstep beyond bass-in-your-face nonsense. We figured that if anyone was going to provide a look at where the genre was headed, it would be Untold, so we enlisted him to put together this exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series. Taking an open-minded approach and liberally utilizing his stock of unreleased tunes, Untold slots heady and experimental tracks alongside animated dancefloor cuts, and even finds time to dabble in some classic house and B-more club. If this mix is any indication, dubstep's future remains bright.

If this is the future of dubstep then dubstep will cease to exist, cause this is not dubstep. Most of the stuff in this mix has more in common with several other genres than with dubstep. In any case, untold is on fire, nice nice vibes indeed. It´s more a mash up of uk funky, broken beat, grime, 8 bar, 2 step, deep house, detroit techno and jungle than dubstep.

Personally, I find the beats a little soul-less but it's definitely a varied mix
