[Dubstep] 501 – Smash EP
One of Finland’s finest closes out his year in style with 4 slices of melodic gold. After starting 2012 with his huge single Headrush, 501’s sound has gone from strength to strength with genre bending originals and some killer remixes for the likes of Nelly Furtado, Drumsound & Bassline andFabio Lendrum. Smash EP draws upon sounds known to dance floors from different eras, new and old – fusing them into that refreshingly diverse production that 501 has become known for. From the 90s rave infused Feel For You to the anthemic Letting Go there seems to be no musical ground that 501 cannot cover.
It’s been quite the year for the Finnish producer and what a way to end off the year with an outrageously good EP. From the uplifting opening track of Feel For You, to the heaviness that is Smash. 501 shows his versatility as a producer with the glitch-hop track Broken Notes and ends the EP off with Letting Go which is the most chill and melodic track of the bunch. This EP is not to be missed if you’re a dubstep fan, or bass music fan in general. With a showing like this, I can’t wait to see what 501 has in store next year!
