Duffstep

To see a man that I went to college with progress so well, has put a smile on my face. Especially when they have made it on their own. Duffstep is playing live among the likes of Kode 9 and Flying Lotus; as well as pushing his productions out under three aliases spanning breaks, dub, dubstep and house. I really began to take notice when I stumbled across a 12" of his in Blackmarket Records / BM Soho and then clicked on his Souncloud links on my Facebook wall. As these things occur nowdays.

This tune, "Together", is one of those peaceful, yet equally powerful pieces of ethereal and jumping beats that echos in your mind for hours. Like Pariah mixed with Burial and taken one step further. Emotive and beautiful, it carries you through its minutes and delivers you to the other side as if only a second had passed.



This teasing video of a Duffstep Live Audio-Visual show gives a pretty good indication of the direction things are going. The man also got himself on Big Up Podacast 33, which can be heard / downloaded below:
