Circus Records co founder Josh Steele aka Flux Pavilion needs no introductions as he has a slew of heavyweight releases under his belt from the seminal dubstep anthem ‘I can’t stop’ to the genre defining ‘Bass Cannon’. Making his intentions clear for 2013 he releases his ‘Blow The Roof’ EP on Circus and Big Beat Records and it is by far one of his most rounded releases to date.
Starting the proceedings with the Trap flavoured ‘OneTwoThree (Make You Body Wanna)’ Flux wastes no time breaking out the squealing lead synths and pitched vocals and sub bass, followed swiftly by the more melodic and song driven but distinctly Flux ‘The Scientist’. What makes Josh’s brand of dubstep so compelling is the fact that he comes from a singer songwriting background so never afraid to use his on gravelly tones and his reggae tinged melodies go great over his raspy basslines.
Slipping back into relatively familiar Electro Dubstep territory the title track ‘Blow The Roof’ is everything it says on the box. Straight up 4 to the floor tearout this will have every UKF rave mosh pit overflowing with teenage bodies. ‘I Feel It’ is bouncy bass number with soaring appreggios which feels very much like a fitting ode to the French Touch, a great reminder of Josh’s versatility if you took his top synth bass bangers as the only indication of what he is capable of.
Teaming up with Childish Gambino by way of the MTV Music Experiment for a slightly more classic dubstep skanker we get ‘Do or Die’. But By far the most surprising and definitive moment on this EP is the finale ‘Starlight’ a melodic dubstep odyssey which embodies all of Flux Pavilion’s flavours into what will be surely prove to be one of the most rinsed out tracks of 2013.
