Marley Carroll - R&S / Cedars

Marley Carroll - R&S / Cedars 

label: self-release 
released: 27 June 2012 
style: electronic idm shoegaze house 
format: 320kbps mp3, FLAC,.... 

On "R&S," Asheville, NC producer Marley Carroll channels the muted and subtlely emotive dubstep of days gone by with a cut that's heavy on the bass but light on bombast. In vintage bass music fashion, this just-under-140-bpm tune provides almost no melodies in the high- and mid-range, instead focusing on sharp percussion and a heap of breathing sub-bass tones. Short vocal snippets and a simple synthline pepper the tune, but the song's allure isn't so much in the notes as in the spaces between them.
