Sometimes all it takes is a single track that can change the course of music and re-define a genre.
Enter asteroids by V.I.V.E.K, a future classic and the first release on his label SYSTEM MUSIC, back with over my head featuring Mel Dymond and a remix by Om Unit. This comes off the back of his night SYSTEM which has shifted the sound known as dubstep back to its foundation; No hype, just music.
The opening track Asteroids is an epic minimal killer which has been supported by all the major players in the scene . Slow echoed strings fall into flashes of reverbed synths tinged with subtle emotion . The drop is depth defying, pure weight, power, feeling, but controlled like a lion ready to pounce on its unsuspecting prey. Close your eyes, listen, meditate.
Over my head featuring Mel Dymond is as sublime if not rawer in emotion and feeling as asteroids due the creepy echoed vocals. Her flawless oration tints with echoes that pulsate into raw emotion and feeling that works effortlessly with the track. At one point in the track there is simply a sea of bass with echoed vocals hauntigly calling you. This is as deep as it gets
A rework of asteroids also sits on the first release by man of the moment Om Unit, who brings his swagger and style to the remix. Exquisitely made, he has managed to keep the raw aesthetics of the track while adding a deep house / half step amalgamation. At points the double timed hats give a sense of urgency in the track which gives in some way a second groove, going from a deep house to a drum bass step. Truly inspirational rework.FREE MP3s of Asteroids by V.I.V.E.K when you buy the Vinyl
