Scalade demonstrates his ability to craft high quality, deep, dark dubstep with this four track EP that features a stunning remix from Konvex to round off the experience. Drawing the listener in with the visceral, haunting track 'Torment', he establishes the tone and shows his intent. Following up is 'Abyss', a deep, tribal affair brimming to the top with bass pressure to go along with its stomping half-time rhythms. Next is the original mix of 'Kingpin', which features more tribal percussive elements, rich textures and powerful, punchy low end. This release is for fans of the deepest, darkest sides of dubstep, and is one that surely won't disappoint.

Check out the review from One Forty Deep


Oregon indie label Phantom Hertz Recordings have long been flying the flag for the deep and dark dungeon sound with consistently good releases, and so their run continues with PH023, featuring UK producer Scalade, and fellow Brit Konvex.

Title track Torment is a classic half-time stepper, balancing dark growling mids and subs against light keys, soothing pads and perfectly pitched ethereal vocal samples. Abyss steps up the pace with 4/4 kicks, simmering atmospherics and powerful percussive effects.

Kingpin sees us back in classic half-time territory, with bass and space in abundance, and plenty of tension as the atmospherics work up the intensity as the tune progresses. Konvex's remix keeps the dark atmospherics intact but strips it back and gives it a techno twist with deep staccato beats rumbling their way throughout, while subtle acid squelches punctuate the groove.

A big release that will appeal to the dungeon crowd on all counts, while the Konvex remix adds some variety whilst staying true to the original.

Scalade - Torment EP is available to buy from all good digital retailers
