Lately we been seeing a lot of unique dubstep coming out of the states, especially the west coast; but that’s not to say that the rest of the world isn’t nurturing future talent as well. Finland native Konsta Mikkonen, better known as Muffler by EDM enthusiasts, released his latest EP in November, solidifying his acceptance of the challenge to do something original with the genre.
The title track Calling Your Name has effectively flipped dubstep on its side. You’ll see elements of D&B, hip hop, and even trance in this song. All of these conglomerate into something completely masterful. The production here is so crisp, and the composition of the track flows as well as any in the genre. Calling Your Name is part of a somewhat new wave of dubstep that offers a healthy serving of uplifting melodies alongside the gritty bass. Not only is this one simply a delight for the ears, but it shows the natural progression of an exploding genre.
