I’ve been long overdue for a dub techno release to write about. I’ve usually found dub techno to be released via ultra-limited CD runs but sometimes, luckily, a producer will get the itch to release something on vinyl. G.R.I.T. is a producer based out of London and his brand of dub techno I’ve found to be a bit more cloudy than others, in the sense that it’s much more pillowy and inviting than some of his contemporaries brands. Dub techno might be a sub-genre, but there’s still quite a few dividing characteristics to be found among producers. On “Closure” and “Prestige,” we still get a strong pulsing bass that supplements, but does not overpower, the lush and soft dub chords. I’ve talked about this numerous times before, but just in case you’re actually reading this time, this is what gives the genre its true duality of being able to be used as ambient music (I’ve read it labeled as “wall fluff” for clubs) or dance music. Check out both tracks below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
