One to Watch: Ashburner

Dubstep has certainly bubbled over the crest of obscurity and cemented itself as a staple in our pallet of dance music genres. With acts such as Geiom (Berkane Sol), Brakles (FWD) and Spam Chop (Wigflex) hailing from Nottingham our city is harbouring some unique talent. Stealing the raw energy and crisp snares from grime and the sublow frequencies of dubstep, Ashburner looks set to follow. He holds his own as a stalwart of old grime and bassline classics hopping from genre to genre with a frantic agility, often playing over 45 tunes in a 60 minute set. His has remixes of grime classics such as ‘Cha’, ‘Too Many Man’ and rewind trump card Tempa T’s ‘Next Hype’ have resulted in a significant fan base including N-Type, Plastician, RSD and radio 1’s Mista jam. His back to back sets with label boss Goli have erupted dancehalls from London to the Rave in the Grave Halloween underpass.

Catch him in his element at their night For The Win Records on the 10th at Brownes and at Muse on the 20th November. To hear more go to their myspace.
