‘Unsound Festival Presents Bass Mutations’


Pole is a Kraut-dub legend thanks to his own productions and his ~scape label, but the schizophrenic funk he’s helped inspire might overshadow him tonight. “Bad Girls,” on Fabric’s new Elevator Music, shows just what Untold, arguably the most game-changing recent dubstep producer, is capable of in hooking the ghosts of r&b to a wobbly bass. The Netherlands’ 2562 stretched dupstep into a nervous dream on 2009’s Unbalance, while Romania’s TRG conjoins polyrhythms and rave sounds into dance-compelling exuberance. FaltyDL is New York’s own experimental bass ambassador to the ever-nuts Planet Mu label. With Pavel Ambiont, Dave Q, Konque, and Sepalcure.
