The Purple Wow Sound is currently taking dubstep by storm. “What the name of Jesus is that?” I hear the uninitiated cry. Well, it’s kinda like G-funk meets dubstep – big, colourful synths, sharp and ragged bass frequencies, and tight-as-fuck hip-hop inspired beats. Dr. Dre goes to Croydon basically. Alongisde fellow Bristol residents Joker, Guido and Gemmy, Ginz is propagating the sound across the world and has been creating some of the heaviest beasts in the genre of late.
A truly sickening producer, he’s also the man behind electro/breaks hybrid 30hz, half of B-more and booty bass enthusiasts Body Snatchers, and he co-founded the immense Tectonic label alongside Pinch. And although he’s repping Bristol right now, he was originally born in Washington, so he’s also kind of flying the flag for the increasingly impressive clutch of American dubstep producers. His DT Podcast crams 18 tracks into 45 minutes, with a bunch of hot-out-the-studio exclusives and plenty of phatness.
