Universal Subscapades
Subscape - Square Albert (Original Mix) [Dub Police]
Subscape - Universal (Original Mix) [Dub Police]
Age of Love - The Age of Love (Subscape Remix) [542]

A never-ending list of new producers await to be discovered, but one that really stands out for me is the recent discovery of Anthony Peters, aka Subscape. This UK-born producer made a significant splash onto the scene with an early collaboration alongside the legendary Caspa, and now with his first original EP, Universal, the world is about to see what this guy is truly made of.

After just one listen I’m certain that Subscape’s latest release is one of my favorites put out by a dubstep artist this year. The EP is 5 tracks long, and it isn’t until you see the quality and listenability of each tune that you realize how deep Universal really is. Square Albert’s the song that stood out the most to me–it uses a classic, Benassi-esque electro buildup interwoven with an uplifting Dutch-step riff that straight up kills it. As expected, the title track boots hard-ass, giving us a whimsically chill and swaggaful dubstep creature that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to man the front lines of such a breakout EP, but grabs and keeps your attention full throttle. Lastly, I’ve added a hopped up, trancy drumstep (you heard that right) remix of Age of Love’s self-titled track. Vastly different from his newer EP, this track packs a helluva punch in its driving, chameleon-like beat.
