Bass Clef A Smile is a Curve that Straightens Most Things
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Blank Tapes
On his very first release, Bass Clef (Hackney, London's Ralph Cumbers) has created something utterly special, an album influenced by the best of dubstep, Ed Banger-style party breaks, and straight-up heavy Jamaican dub. Not many first efforts reach this level of musical originality and still manage to be great for both the headphones and the dancefloor. If there's any justice, people will be talking about this album in the same breath as Burial's debut. Every single track is a winner–sure to resonate beyond the dubstep community.
