DUSK + BLACKDOWN

Focusing on two interesting angles of the London music scene, DUSK + BLACKDOWN have made a video more UK than anything else I've seen in a long time. The first half is dubstep/grime with an absolutely insane looking MC DURRTY GOODZ rapping in the car. The second shitfs drastically to a more melodic dubstep with singer FARRAH. Diasporic Indians in the UK have a huge influence and a well established music scene in the UK, but for some reason it hasn't really ever transfered over to the US. I think this is only the second example I've ever scene other than when JAY-Z teamed up with MC PUNJABI. Not too mention the video is some killer eye candy.

Nice post about Key Sounds Recordings. They've grown in sound in recent years. Before they were just so so dubstep blog tracks, now I want to own their music. Check out their podcast from XLR8R. Its pretty deep and then when it hits with Starkey "Gutter Music" around 25mins it gets grimey! I initially rewound it a few times to hear it again. Thanks for the video, I would have missed it otherwise. You keep surprising me.

Thanks man. Yeah I heard that XLR8R podcast and thought the same thing. I'm gonna keep up with these guys, so if I hear anything else I be sure to send it your way.
