Vinyl and Digital Reviews: William Breakspear, 2D, Tim Healey and Freear

More reviews from our writer Marc Reck, looking at the freshest glitch hop and dubstep releases!

Glitch Hop

William Breakspear Feat. Credit To The Nation & Georgina UptonInnovation (Alternate Version) (Rocstar)

Massive catchy funky glitch hop from the consistently quality Rocstar recordings, with a debut release for William Breakspear, featuring none other than Fusion from the legendary Credit To The Nation on mic duty, and the delectable Liverpool and Birmingham-based vocalist, Georgina Upton. This one has a nice solid glitch-hop groove with some bass wobble carrying the choice lyrics through effortlessly. One which should appeal to a very wide range of tastes.

Release date: 3rd July 2011


Voodoo Night/Smokerz/Definition Of (Resin Records)

Reggae meets dubstep in a brilliant way that should appeal to fans of both genres. Been loving 2D’s sound ever since I heard him and this new one doesn't fail to disappoint. All the tracks on the EP feature his trademark reggae sound and filthy, yet laidback, bass. Set for release and definitely one to get when it drops.

Release date: Coming Soon

Tim Healey vs Freq House feat Loc-e & Pippa TrixResistance (Mark Instinct Remix) (Surfer Rosa)

Dubstep heavy-weight Mark Instinct delivers relentless filth broken only by snippets of a stuttered Pippa Trix vocal and a short foray into Loc-e. If you like your dubstep pummelled you’ll love this.

Release date: 4th July 2011

Freear & EkajGizmo Stomp (Snareophobe Remix) (Ape Recordings)

Very chuffed to see this released as Mike is a diamond geezer and the track is massive. With not one but two remix packages (each containing a host of huge remixes) it's set to do very well on the consistently quality Ape Label. There's loads of great remixes to choose from, from artists such as the Freerange DJs, Jinx In Dub, Ash Howell, Jefr Tale & Ben Tomlinson who all take Gizmo Stomp into new breaks, dubstep and drumstep arenas. But it's this snareophobe remix that I’ve been dropping of late and really pushes the nasty edge into filthy territories. Still climbing the beatport charts, it's a must buy purchase (and if you fancy a listen you can now hear it on Mr Elephant Radio Show 37).

Release date: Out now
