I still clearly remember, this was the first “UK Funky” track I’ve ever heard. I’ve spent a good amount of the later months of 2012 finally getting dubstep and the ecosystem around it, and as such I was following a lot of the labels that were a foundation to the scene. Tectonic was one of them, and this one particularly caught my attention for being so leftfield to my tastes. People were describing this track as " '04 Youngsta dubs meets Roska" or something similar, early dubstep dread atmospherics within the context of UK Funky drum patterns. Of course I didn’t know any better but it still really blew my mind. Beneath is still one of my favorite producers. I now know that UK funky’s generally not a dark genre though.
This track captivated me on the first listen. It brought what made dubstep so fun (dark vibes with attention to drum work) with a sense of hypnotically rolling rhythms associated with slower BPMs. To me this track was like looking into the future.
