They really, really love dubstep over in the UK, but it’s no wonder. With names like Rusko, Nero, Caspa and Joker holding it down, the Brits, with a few exceptions, have a monopoly on the grimiest steps around.
I’m here to reinforce that notion with another Englishman who produces some straight up destructive material. Joshua Steele, better known to the world at large as Flux Pavilion, has a new single Lines in Wax set for release in October. His strain of dubstep screams with unrestrained power. There’s just a raw sense of physicality with each peak, as the track layers dissonance and melody to create an overwhelming wave of sound. His remix of Gold Dust really shows this off; when I heard Bassnectar drop it live, it pretty much blew up the stage.
