Be-1ne - cane cutter / soar [ARE004] Out Now! Artist: Be-1ne Tracks: cane cutter/ soar Cat No: ARE004 Format: 12” Vinyl (Ltd 150 Copies Only) Release Date: 04/04/2011 Starting the year in the voting category for best new label on the DubstepForum.com awards. 2011 see’s Area Recordings once more pushing its boundaries of sound with a new release from label boss ‘Be-1ne’. Continuing to forge his own direction ARE004 brings forth 2 stripped back weighty rollers, showing that emotive dance floor dubstep is all about the beats and the bass. On the a-side ‘cane cutter’ delivers a knock out blow, opening with brooding atmospherics and industrial sounding bass stabs, into a syncopated melody and a chopped half time break, before unleashing its hidden rolling bassline and drums. This is a definite dance floor smasher taking dubstep back to its roots of dark rooms and big sound! On the b-side Be-1ne further explores this terrain with ‘soar’. Showing a more musical laid back approach to his production palette. The opening guitar stabs seem reminiscent of an old western, used sparingly, drawing you in but not overwhelming the listener along side its intricate percussion patterns. The track drops with a mighty helping of bass, kicks, echoing snares and 2-step inspired syncopation evolving through each passage introducing lush flutes and refined silence. This release will again be a very limited edition vinyl of 150 copies, including mp3 download form and logo Sticker.
