Boomkat Product Review:
A really confident, coherent debut album from Author, the duo of Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin. Dubstep is virtually an old man now, and yet you could count the number of memorable LPs the genre's thrown up on one hand. Author's effort attempts to redress this, offering up 10 tracks that are club-strength, but rich and musical enough to work as home listening too. The only real vocal track is the opener, 'Turn', with Ed Thomas's croon set to Kuedo-esque synth waterfalls, rudeboy subs and an unreconstructed halfstep skank. Horns, on the other hand, are a surprisingly prominent component to Author's sound: with its woozy reggae parps and slouchy beat 'Green & Blue' is likely to become a fixture of Bristol bars and bake-outs for years to come, while 'Sun' bravely - and successfully - attempts to marry wistful jazz trumpet to a dubstep framework. The second half of the album toughens up and heads straight for the heart of the dance: 'Mothership' seems custom-built to fit into Pinch's Subloaded sets, while 'Fix', 'The City' and 'Teacher' are high-octane, syncopated house bombs. An ambitious and well-judged album this, one which deserves to find a wide audience outside of the West Country basshead scene.
