Earwax steps a little deeper for their next outing on vinyl with 2 killer tracks from new names on the dubstep scene -- production duo Skinnz & I.D. 'The Blues' is a deep and tribal affair laden with warm muffled pads and gut wrenching soundsystem subs. The heavily swung conga workout that forms a backbone to the rhythm is both hypnotic and energizing and quickly conjures images of a late night tribal gathering around a voodoo bonfire! As the track works into a breakdown it resurfaces, touched with a gentle melodic layer akin to Mala circa 2005. Quality dance music for your mind and feet! Flip for 'Issues' as the duo show in one release the breadth of their skills with this soulful roller. Combining a driving 2step beat with playful congas, a diving bassline and muted housey stabs -- this rhythm swings from dark smokey corners into skanking, grooving party vibes.
