It’s embarrassing to admit, but I was first very into brostep. Before skrillex I was all about datsik, excision, vaski, emalkay, bassnectar, latter rusko, etc.
I’d always dabbled in the truer stuff and Rusko’s fabric mix will always be one of my favorite things to exist ever. After I really immersed myself in that mix I dug in and would have to say what really sold me
were tunes like Mala - Mountain Dread March and Pinch - Angels In The Rain, then the whole underwater dancehall album. Helped me listen to music more keenly in general, too.
