^^ Weights built into them? Lol cunce
Pretty sure the Silk Road Assassins lot were a bunch of dungeon producers like 4 - 5 years ago. Even though their style of production & their output has completely changed I feel like this track really brings out their previous influences. The drum patterns stylized like dubstep with kick on 1 snare on 3rd beat (dubstep’s always been compared with hip hop anyways) but the tempo for this track is brought down to around 120ish. Not to mention the whole menacing atmosphere reeks of that claustrophobic atmosphere from dungeon except with a glowing sci-fi twist.
A lot of producers who showed a lot of potential really moved away from the scene and really glowed up elsehwere. TBH if you stick with a scene and get labeled, and the scene’s not cool anymore, nobody’s going to care about you. Who still remembers any dungeon producers who were at it around 2011 when it got big? AFAIK, Wen [Keysound] ended up moving towards a grime palette but now he’s making some big experimental beats rn, Lurka is making straight up techno now (pretty good imo), and fuck knows where the producers who put up dungeon tracks in soundcloud 4-5 years ago. This one producer I know, Scalade, is making some wavey hip hop / trap stuff now. There still are a lot of talented truheads, but even they branched out to other scenes, just like how Tempa is releasing non-140 tracks and Tectonic is on a roll with non-dubstep stuff. Granted all the shitty EDM fuckstep is still going to top beatport charts and get reported on trend blogs but the underground’s still bubbling up.
