No one can accuse me of focusing on one genre considering I’ve covered a pretty large chunk of the music spectrum in the last few posts and this one is no exception as I venture into unknown territory with “Solar“, the first EP by Gunf1ghter.
Again this is another discovery from my Facebook feed and this time I venture into the realms of Dubstep. Now, being honest Dubstep isn’t really my scene, in my eyes it’s like alcohol is meant to be, used in moderation. I think there’s a time and a place for dubstep, for example when in a club, at a party or as I experienced at Reading, in a silent disco… And this is an example of that.
I first heard some of this stuff whilst at a gathering with the artist and it sounded great. ‘I have a Feeling’ was the first song we listen to, and what remained good about it was that despite the standard dubstep drop which usually kills the song, the actual song appeared to remain pretty much intact and there was still a bit of rhythm to it. The same can be said for ‘OR1G1NAL MU51C’ which again forms a half decent song (I can’t believe I’m saying that for a dubstep song). I also do love the vocals in that song, the voice is undeniably hilarious.
What is good here is the mixture. There’s lighter dubstep for us who have our limits and for the die-hard dubstep fans, of which I know many coming from a preppy college, the heavier, dirtier drops. Overall for a dubstep fan, I’m sure it’s perfect considering I can still enjoy it and I don’t really like dubstep so for a first album, I’d say it’s definitely worth a try. And it’s free! So there’s very little stopping you giving it a chance.
Pick of the Album:
TC feat. MC Dread – Burning Starlight (Gunf1ghter Remix) – Not too dirty for me and a good song. The vocals work and the drops seem as if they should be there. More of the way dubstep should be in my eyes, almost part of the music.
Rating: ★★★ 3/5 (Which I’d say is pretty good considering my detest for dubstep)
