Belief Is The Enemy
"Grievous Angel is a dubstep and ragga techno outfit run by paul.meme. Grievous Angel deliver a soundsystem-ready dubstep bass pummeling that crosses over into a unique form of ragga techno, combining acidic power electronics with bashment beats. His tunes often feature infamous dancehall MC Rubi Dan, who is resident with London's Heatwave soundsystem. Grievous Angel's influences include Tackhead, Throbbing Gristle, Saxon Sound, King Jammy and El-B. A first-wave garage fan who went all the way from jungle to dark 2step, paul.meme is well known for the iconic Dubstep Sufferah series of DJ mixes that have pushed the boundaries of the form and reunited dubstep with both MC-driven dancehall and grime. His early mp3 releases received glowing reviews in The Wire by dub expert Steve Barker, who also commissioned a reggae and breakcore mix from him for the legendary On The Wire radio show back in 2005. Belief Is The Enemy is the first official release for Paul. It is an exciting mix of dubstep, hyper-glitched textures and propulsive ragga techno presented over two CDs. One CD is a DJ mix with tons of bass weight and dub manipulation; the other CD is unmixed, a serious album with proper sequencing which is also an armory of dub weapons."
