For a scene that was once brewing quietly in the deepest darkest depths of South London, it’s remarkable to see Dubsteps original spacious and organic sound influence heads as far afield as New Zealand. With pioneers Truth leading the way, a thriving hub of 140 producers has been unearthed and among the brightest prospects are Perverse a.k.a. Auckland City representatives Brett & Alex.
Inspired by a range of genres from the 808’s and lean of hiphop to the twisted rhythms of hard Drum and Bass luminaries Noisia, Black Sun Empire and Spor, Perverse were drawn to production through their collective love of bass heavy music. Purveyors of intensely dark and uncompromising eyes-down beats, their sound is exemplified by a precise control over shuddering sub frequencies and a minimal sparseness of construction reminiscent of early Loefah or Kryptic Minds. Whilst their musical influences are notable, Perverse bring their own unique and refreshing take on the sound, with a repertoire of versatile riddims infused with intelligent syncopated beats and chest caving low end.
