What You Do With What You Have (Single)
Released: Sep 2011
Label: R&S Records
Many erstwhile dubsteppers are turning to classic house and techno; Blawan underscores his own defection to the ranks of four-to-the-floor foot-soldiers with two tracks of unrelenting bunker techno. "What You Do with What You Have" hammers its point home with thick chord stabs and overdriven drums. The squelching 303 bassline is acid at its most primal, while the back-to-basics pep talk, sampled from a Moodymann lecture, is processed in a way that makes it urgent and strange. "Vibe Decorum" is even more intense, with a manic chorus underscored by industrial drums running perilously amok.
