Dubstep is evolving. Whether you’re on or off the bandwagon, the trajectory is evident from the staggering stylistic range of the past year’s brightest talents. From the lush lovestep of Seven Lions to the jazz-dub meanderings of Sub Motion Orchestra, a seven-piece live outfit situated somewhere between Adventure Club and Squarepusher, new artists are ensuring the oft-maligned genre continues to hold its own as an exciting and inspiring art form.
After extending a welcoming hand to bass music with the release of Noisia‘s tremendous “Nothing Matters” remix, Mark Knight is once again getting involved. This time, he’s lent his groovy tech house touch to Sub Motion Orchestra’s sultriest single “Thinking.” The Toolroom boss’s first release of 2013 showcases his funkier side with a buoyant bass and crisp layers of carefully chosen percussion that complement the track’s lovely vocals. New year, same old Mark Knight. No complaints here.
