Dubstep, Review | Meta – The Alpha EP

Posted by on July 27, 2012

Lifted Music, the epic label owned by the legend, Spor (Feed Me), has been one of the most powerful labels in Drum & Bass and now taking on the Dubstep community with the upcoming duo, Meta. Meta however is not limiting themselves to just Dubstep, the duo claims to be masters of all EDM styles. In this debut release, Meta shows us what powers they hold with their intro track, “Alpha.” The track is solely melodic with a strong emotional finish leading to “Phoenix Down.” As I would expect from Lifted Music, “Phoenix Down” starts melodically, but drops heavy into a mind blowing bass-line. “Flare” is styled slightly different, by has an elongated euphoric opening. By the middle of the track, you are reintroduced to the same type of filth as “Phoenix Down,” owning your eardrums. With a debut EP like this, it is no surprise it released on such legendary label.

Hahaha this video is awesome.  Xaphoon works his magic for the second single off Chiddy Bang’s upcoming album, Breakfast set to be released on February 28th, pulling a Ray Charles sounding piano riff along with soulful background vocals into the beat.  Chiddy and Xaph take it back to their younger days in Chiddy’s basement which segways into a full fledged gospel service which is a play off the original Blues Brothers scene.  Like the first single, “Mind Your Manners”, this song is catchy as hell with some clever verses from Chiddy, but primarily a dope sample from Xaph.

After touring together for several months, Mod Sun recruits G-Eazy and Meta (not to be confused with Metta World Peace) for his newest track produced by Adam Ivy.  “Rappin’ A$$ Rappers” just goes to show how thug Mod Sun and G-Eazy are.  Hah, psych.  They’re probably two of the most easy going hippies artists in the game and the polar opposite of DMX.  Stay up, they’re coming.

After releasing one of the dopest mixtapes of the year, Los continues doing what he does by rocking a freestyle to Drake’s “Lord Knows” off Take Care.  I’ve heard better free’s from Los, but he’s grown into one of my favorite new artists so it’s impossible to hate on it.  I do respect the Tebow line he threw in though.
