Where Deformer normally sets the tone with innovative Jungle or quality Breakcore, they now give new direction to the Dubstep genre in their own onorthodox way.
The Defsteppah E.P. Kicks off with the title track and a roots Reggae atmosphere soon turns into a vicious bass driven stepper with angry, yet conscious lyrics of Mike Redman and Scapu Lox on top.
The second track ‘Damien Dub’ already found it’s way to the underground club audience and is becoming a party favorite. A twisted rave line holds together a complicated drum pattern while a foundation of solid bass slowly mangles your hearing bone.
‘Extreme Deformity’, the third track on this e.p. is a quite original track which fuses the typical Rotterdam Hardcore sound with deep Dubstep. From the one into another in just a matter of minutes. Not for softies...
The Defsteppah e.p. is a limited edition release and has an incredible lasered picture pattern on the B side of the disc. It will not be repressed. Get your high quality digital release at: deformer.bandcamp.com
