"The Dubstep Anthem of 2005. Already canned by Hatcha, 1xtra's Ras Kwame, Distinction, Youngsta included it to wide acclaim on the latest Tempa mix, Dubstep All Stars Volume 2, and this track just seems to keep cropping up all over the shop -- the blogs are alight at the prospect of this record. Props are in order to Bristol's Tectonics for bringing this music out -- breathtakingly simple, even minimal in its sense of detail, the bass is just so immense here, it fair pins you to the wall. Remorseless progression, with whacked out flanging extra bass over the top for good measure. The deployment of dub effects is kept sparing and as such is all the more effective. 'Fearless' on the flip is all about some advanced low-end science -- keeping it almost exclusively subsonic. Loefah is a central part of the whole Digital Mystikz / Dmz axis, widely regarded as the reigning dons of dubstep, Skream is surfing a huge wave of interest currently, after his Ital 12" brought this superb producer to a wider audience. His latest for Tempa, 'Midnight request line' has even even prompted Dizzee freestyles on Rinse FM, a true sign of how far this instrumental dub for steppas has come. Already enjoying classic tune status -- '28 grams' is the kind of record which leads you to reflect that, finally, we may be witnessing the blossoming of this exciting scene."
