A nice slice of Pop-Step for a Thursday lunchtime.
Some track need lengthy explanations by hack journalists, like me. Some songs don’t. Luckily this is the latter. While this track skirts pop, there is enough filth and bass going on to keep it credible.
Over the years pop music has corrupted and debased many a noble genre of music, it’s involvement with dubstep/heavy bass electronic music is the most worrying. Deep down we all know that dubstep ever really existed as a genre, it was a term coined by lazy journalists to explain something that a handful of producers were doing about 10 years ago. As we are aware, the weight of this exposure meant that the scene became bloated and eventually imploded on itself. Sadly now it is a bit of a dirty word, like Jungle in the late 1990’s, which is a shame as some of the tracks still sound great and fill me with the same excitement as when they first came out.
In the world of Pop-Step this is a great track. While the lyrics aren’t ground breaking, the interplay with the music is inspired. They sway and intertwine until the filth switch is pressed and then BAM it’s a total banger. Although it is a filth off, it still retains a pop sensibility that keeps the bass from melting your eardrums. While I totally understand that this isn’t a new song, and I’ve probably missed the boat, it’s still a great way to spend a Thursday afternoon. Listening to this. On repeat. While working.
