On the other side of Dubstep

As you've all probably noticed, this week we've come back with loads of various content for the show. Apart from the weekly showcases, this week The Beat Suite is looking at Dubstep that's just a bit different.
Here's some of the stuff we played:

The Upbeats - Big Skeleton
Label: Non Vogue

The album name inspired by a grim story straight out of a Brazilian favela well represents the content. A concept-album take on Dubstep, which sounds very promising.

Eskmo - Let Them Sing
Label: Planet Mu

An incredibly produced, spacious, wet and 'chewy' tune by the San Francisco based Brendan Angelides, aka "Eskmo" & "Welder".
Having played alongside legends such as Tipper, Si Begg, Glitch Mob and Flying Lotus, his style is an impressive mixture of space, power and pristine production.

Beautiful Small Machines w/ Simon Lebon (of Duran Duran) - Simple Joys- Mindelixir Remix
Th
e Higher EP
Label: Abstract Logic Recordings

This tune shows just how much potential and inspiration Dubstep still has to offer. Very accessible, with a chance to really make it big in the wider scene. This tune got to #18 on Hype Machine as Mindelixir reported on his
Facebook.

Mycho Pan Cocoa - Flute Shot (Low Frequency High Life EP) Label: MalLabel Music
Organic, fat and laid back, this track shows a fusion of what The Beat Suite like most in dubstep. Slightly resembling the atmosphere of Mongolia Expedi Sound (I.O.T. Records) this tune is just a taste of an incredibly varied release.


Subject Lost - 220V
495 Minus EP Label: Owntempo
Crafted into a vast atmospheric ambience, this tune is an example of how progressive dubstep is getting, putting much more attention to the background and build up of atmosphere. Great concept, great EP.
