Dark and experimental from Moonshine Recordings

If UK dubwise roots and steppers are your thing you ought to check out Moonshine Recordings’ new 15 track compilation Steppin’ Forward. It’s a melting pot of most genres with a love for ridiculous loud bass and pounding drums.

It collects only heavy as lead and unreleased material from a number of exciting upcoming producers as well as experienced veterans, such as Zion Train, Kalbata, Hylu & Jago and RSD.

When listening through the 15 tracks you are sure to get overwhelmed by the versatility and the ability and will to experiment and take the music forward into new dimensions and create new and dramatic soundscapes.

The set is mostly instrumental, even though Ranking Joe, Wayne Jarrett, Cian Finn, Sleepy Ghost, Jazzmin Tatum and Kinetical drop verses and choruses on six cuts.

Moonshine Recordings has put out a tough compilation where Vibration Lab’s dreamy and ethereal Buy You Gold neighbours with 6Blocc’s driving Sweet Dub, a track sounding almost like a version of Ranking Dread’s Fattie Boom Boom, and where Kalbata’s experimental Man God shares bed with Tuff, Powa & Kinetic’s deejay explosion Outlaw Music.

A compilation for those who like their dubwise reggae served with a high dose of epic bass and slices of innovative and futuristic arrangements.
