A good friend of ours derides dubstep for “being a bunch of default computer noises”. We tried reviving the faith (and washing away the damage caused by youtube vomit aka. “dubstep [insert noun of choice]”) by exposing her to the mismatched, cut and paste brilliance of James Blake but to no avail. Our next plan is to pump SBTRKT’s Wildfire. Its delicious hook and Yukimi Nagano’s pleading vocals have proved irresistible to both us and the entire internet. Question is, will it infiltrate our friend’s dubstep defence? Wish us luck.
