After hearing this in all its melodic glory on an all-encompassing soundsystem last night, this bass-head tips her bonnet at Quest, who alongside Silkie, Distance and Tunnidge, tore up London’s XOYO for Croydub’s 6th Birthday celebration. As one of the intergral members of Mala‘s Deep Medi army, he released this 12” beauty in 2008.
Dubstep is dirty word these days, but there’s nothing rough or gritty about ‘Eden’. Skank and smile in this 140 utopia, with lush Spanish guitar samples bringing warm Medi-terranean sunshine to the ears. The dance music world might be trying to wash its hands of the genre, but with tracks of this calibre, they’ll have to scrub hard.
