An exciting dubstep producer turns to house.
A few key things differentiate Sieverding's house tracks from the standard stuff: space, bass and atmosphere. It'd be too simplistic to say the EP sounds like a dub and dubstep guy doing house, but that's not far off. "Toxic Waste," for instance, feels like it's skanking in a cathedral, such is the volume of reverb tailing its snares and background sounds. At 106 BPM, "Delivero," a combination of reggae samples, sharp kick drums and heavy bass, is closer in tempo to dub than dubstep. "Agadir" is similarly paced and adds hand percussion to the mix, à la Yak. It's possible Sieverding has started or ended a set with "Garzweiler," an atmospheric ambient piece with ghostly touches. There's admittedly a certain novelty factor in hearing Sieverding make house music, but while these aren't the strongest tracks to leave his Friedrichshain studio, they should get plenty of play in their intended part of the night.
