distal - Civilization
At this point everyone’s got their own view on the Yank’s co-opting of dubstep, but you should know in advance that Atlanta beatsmith Distal is no Skrillex clone, he does come after all co-signed by Pinch’s rearview-wobbling Tectonic label. Rather than hit the post-‘Spongebob’ chainsaw bass mode, Distal instead blends Atlanta’s signature electro-indebted bass-heavy ‘dirty south’ sound with the rolling minimalism of Martyn, 2562 or Pinch himself. This rare rap focus gives a stark individuality to Distal’s sound, and tracks like ‘Preach On Hustle’, ‘Rattlesnake’ and ‘House Party Five’ are an entry point in a sound that manages to exist in entirely its own realm. Sure there are nods to the juke/footwork movement with ‘Drop Like This’ and ‘Gorilla’, but with ‘Civilization’ Distal has given Atlanta the focus, and ended up on an album that manages to sum up the best parts of the US electronic underground without diluting it. Strong wares - highly recommended.
