FACT Mix 298: Dusk & Blackdown
Dusk & Blackdown are another of those acts that we’ve been asking for a FACT mix from for years. Now they've submitted it, and we’re glad they chose to wait.
The pair recently played for Found & Days Like That’s Heritage night alongside some of garage’s all-time greats and in Blackdown's own words “to celebrate our set at Heritage, we wanted to shed some light on those foundational releases often referred to as the “Roots of Dubstep,” without which there would be no dubstep.”
“The mix is bookended at one end by some late ‘90s New York and New Jersey garage, with all its warmth and 4×4 swing and at the other by Loefah’s first release, “Jungle” on Big Apple records. In between it descends into a lost, edgy hinterland, a percussively diverse space between that warm swing of garage and cold, b-line driven dread that would characterise large parts of the 2004-06 second wave of dubstep.”
