Pangaea – “Inna Daze / Won’t Hurt” – [Hessle Audio]

Dianthus   6/22/2011   12-inch, A Library

Dubstep has taken a turn up in the last year or so. Not so much the volume or the amount of sub-bass, but the amount of beats per minute. Pangaea (aka Kevin McAuley) and co-founder of Hessle Audio, has done just this. He brings the roots of UK dubstep along with some teched-out fruity loops to this nice 2-track EP. The first track “Inna Daze” literally screams for your attention and then sends you into the doomy deep. Soon you find yourself cranking your body into head-bobbing action with some Detroit tech -house lady yells and 50s-style ray guns. “Won’t Hurt” stays true to the Dubstep sound by spooking you out at the front door and then in walks the womps just in time to get you to boogie to the climatic violin serranade and shake hands with some astonishing 130bpm technoid beats. If you enjoy the likes of Benga, Skream or Elegato give this wheel of steel a try.
