It was an amazing weekend for dubstep in Philadelphia this past week. First we had TRUTH invade District N9ne for their Philadelphia debut, accompanied by Joe Nice, Ludge, DJ Nysus and Shanti. Then, the very next night the massive lineup of AFK, Midnight Tyrannosaurus and Rekoil took the city by storm. The show was further supported by a destructive back to back set from local producers Subtronics and Architekt. It was the perfect opportunity for Subtronics to lay his new Panic Attack EP out on the awaiting masses. For an hour and a half straight, these two laid the crowd out with non-stop bass waves scattered all across the dubstep sound spectrum. Of course, there was plenty of rigid basslines compacted within the set though.
Subtronics’ sound definitely leans toward the heavier, almost mechanized bass sound. Digging into deep involvement from crunchy treble wobbles and thunderous bass punches, the Panic Attack EP showcases a certain passion of aggression. It splits the atmosphere with volatile thrusts of electronic sound, so far removed from anything organic it borders on futuristic.
