WDDS (pronounced ‘Woods’) returns with his first works of 2023; four, cold, moody, captivating, atmospheric dubstep tracks following a suit of releases on his label Hectare Discs and a stand-out jungle track on EMA’s Woozy 2.5 compilation.
The Mancunian draws a wide range of influences, spanning cinematic techno and contemporary film scores, already perking the ears of honourable selectors such as Jossy Mitsu, Mixtress and Mantra.
‘Pedra’ glides over a sub-heavy bass and reverberated stabs that are set against spacious percussion.
‘Rough Peak’ is glitchy and eerie, complimented by a warping baseline and a sinister drone that slowly builds into a peak-time driver.
‘Hunts Bank’ uses samples from central-African origin reworked into a crunchy-roller suited to the latter stages of a wild and dark club evening, reminiscing something of the early DMZ, Tectonic and Hemlock days.
The final track of the EP ‘Tokyo 2047’ is a futuristic dubstep rhythm capturing the essence of a late night in a city of the future.
