"From the influential stable of Martin Clark's Keysound label comes Dusk & Blackdown's latest plate; the anthemic 'Mantis'. The kids are ready for deep bass and sparse beats, so who are we to disagree? Beginning with a sample from some unknown Eastern cassette tape we are instantly in dubstep nirvana -- one foot firmly in China and one foot in a muddy puddle on the Estates of South London. As leaden beats tumble over ear-pummeling bass it becomes obvious that the man Dusk intended this to lay waste to the world's growing soundsystems. Flip over for Martin Clark's own take on 'Mantis', which spaces out the beats a little and drops a truly destructive throbbing bassline for good measure. With much of the genre taking tentative steps into Eastern experimentation it's nice to see these two producers getting it absolutely right without exploiting the 'world music' angle too intensely. Stir-fried to perfection!"
