Various Production Mix

Finally some decent length mixes this week, the first is an awesome dubstep mix from Various Production. You never know what you're going to get with these guys and this mix is no different. Although being around since pretty much the start of dubstep, VP seem to come across as outsiders, maybe because they have an edginess to their tunes that's not present in most of the dancefloor orientated dubstep coming out of the UK. And also because their first album had a few tracks that were just vocal and acoustic guitar, something you wouldn't find on a Benga album that's for sure...

Highlights include the synth heaven of Starman and the insane Drink It featuring MC Vex. And the vocal track near the end is MC Vex also, not Mike Skinner...

  1. I think they feel like outsiders because they never associated themselves solely with dubstep from the beginning. It was like any links with dubstep were an afterthought or a secondary element to their music. Tunes like sinner and the flip (can't remember the track) were more folk-focused than dubstep.

  2. thanks! looking forward to this immensely!

  3. Various is amazing, can't get enough. Hater was huge, both albums are worth a listen.
