Boomkat Product Review:
There seems to be a bit of a theme with this week's dubstep releases all thankfully abandoning the halfstep shackles that have suffocated the scene over the last 12-18 months, and Whistla has jumped on this shift adopting a rudeboy garage style on 'Heaven'. Drawing for the 2-step, Whistla crafts a very useful sub riding riddim with skittering hi-hat patterns and wild pitched diva snatches, adding a far sexier flow and motion to his sound than any of his previous outings. It's great to see the artist develop yet again on the flip with 'rollerball', a chopped and screwed breakstep killer with Anthony Shakir meets Slaughter mob style percussive edits and tumultuous bass that just kills it. Great stuff.
