Honestly, we don’t quite know what to say about this.
By all accounts, we are not bias when it comes to selecting music to post. No one is paying us that much (yet), and the fellows in Vancouver over at Monstercat most certainly are not supplying us with any “cheddar”, “bones”, “skrilla” or however you whippersnappers refer to money these days. With the first month of 2014 coming to a close, it is safe for us to say that Monstercat Records has easily edged out any and all competition involved in the release of quality electronic tunes.
Besides maybe Lil Kim, Alanis Morissette, Macy Gray, Switchfoot and Kesha.
That being said, and all brown-nosing aside, you-know-who is up to their old tricks again with their latest, epically stygian Drum and Bass single from Bustre, who apparently has resurfaced from his brief stint away in the shadows of despair (possibly crafting this beat?).
Buster Charles, or Bustre as he is cleverly known by, hails from Dundee, Scotland and has been “mixing all genres of D&B into 174 futuristic beats per minute” for quite some time now. His latest track, “Shadow,” is a nearly seven minute beast of a song. The entire first atmospherically driven minute is spent merely setting the mood for Bustre’s initial break of immense aural magnitude. We believe Mr. Charles has done an excellent job in varying the chords, instruments and overall mood in a way to make the rather lengthy track time seem almost irrelevant. Nicely done sir.
For this Rager, Drum and Bass music is ideal for one thing: getting shit done.
So get out your to-do list and throw this next one on repeat. Before you know it, you will have pumped out all those tasks with enough time to come back and read our next post.
Until then my friends.
