This week we’re, once again, teaming up with N-Type and LD to celebrate the impending release of LD’s Beta Blockers EP – his first release since completing a degree in Audio Production.
Today, we’ve got an extra special competition for the dubstep producers out there— and we know you’re going to love it! In the run-up to the release of the Beta Blockers EP next week, we’re giving you the opportunity to remix LD’s Blanka — a tune we’re releasing as a FKOF Free Download today…
“August 2016 marks the return of a key player in the early development of the dubstep movement. South London DJ/ producer (& ex-Transition Mastering Technician) LD returns to his dubstep roots after getting his head down and crafting his sound.
“LD’s Beta Blockers EP is a fresh take on his signature sound mixing elements of grime, tribal and tropical beats with massive basslines. With his debut on the label, LD has also introduced Wheel & Deal to the Stems mixing technology and we have decided we’ll be offering Stems for many future releases”.
The FKOF review:
“After a short refocus on education over production, DJing and mastering, LD’s Blanka reveals the new creative space the producer finds himself in with a welcome return to dubstep. The tune inspires memories of old-school video games, with its returning sample loops that run through the mind?—?only stopping when the break breaks its silence. On-point percussion adds to the almost jungle-esque vibe at 140bpm, spicing up Blanka’s vibrations. With our first free download with him, London’s LD has highlighted his ability to intelligently places samples, bassweight and future sounds into a wicked addition to the Beta Blockers EP. This one’s a highly recommended stepper!”
