Following up some great ones by Samba, Hebbe and Sleeper, the UK's Crucial Sounds are back with more bass driven/street-level shenanigans courtesy of newcomer Opus. He has a seemingly intrinsic musical prowess, coupled with a knack for reaching far beyond the constructs of conventions and expectations. This sort of ravenous creative mentality has earned Opus a debut release on White Peach Records, as well as a subsequent release on Encrypted Audio. Bridging the gap wonderfully between dubstep and grime on the darkside wobble of "Sharpie", the eerie "Peel follows featuring pounding beats and immersive/textural sound design. On the flip, delve deep into the exotic on "Newspeak" where its Middle Eastern instrumentation meges with fierce breakbeats.
