Bhamra is far from a dubstep purist; an unreleased VIP remix sees a floaty rework of "What It Is" at a more house-friendly tempo (which provided an answer to the titular question: "house music" ). More recently, his Seoul Power mix has him combining classic house with his own tracks, shedding a good amount of light on where his slightly dusty sound comes from and revealing British bass music's unexpected rapport with names like Anton Zap and Kerri Chandler.
"Mrs Fingers" takes "What It Is" one step further and constructs a dubstep tune out of vintage Trax records rather than UQ. This one is a halfstep monster that culminates in distinctly liquid crashes, oversized raindrops that wobble and shatter on impact. Coupled with shimmering chord stabs and an ever-present electrical hum, it balances dubstep, deep house and even dub techno in a sonic palette that sounds right out of the early '90s. Capitalizing on these dub-techno hints, Quantec jumps in for a midtempo remix, turning the shimmer into smooth, lockstep-linear opacity. At 127 BPM, it's not exactly slow house but it feels like it's stuck in some purgatorial stasis.
