The former Vex'd man talks bass.
Roly Porter loves bass. It's been the defining throughline of both his work with Jamie Teasdale as Vex'd and his 2011 solo album, Aftertime. As part of Vex'd, Porter charted a possible path for dubstep in its early days, and released one of its first full-lengths, Degenerate. The duo eventually broke apart, and Porter faded from view, hardly listening to music—let alone making it. Last year, though, he re-emerged under his own name, with an album that contained an indefinable mix of sub-heavy avant-classical. We caught up with Porter as part of our Live RA Exchange series at 2012's Mutek Festival in Montreal.
