Release date 04/08/08
Emerging from the sound proofed walls of Dubstep’s legendary mastering institution, Transition Studios, LD is a man who has heard every new plate created by the scene’s top players, by cutting dubplates for the likes of Mala (DMZ), Skream, Benga, Distance and N-Type. For a producer at the epicentre of sound, you wouldn’t be surprised to hear his productions influenced by these prodigious talents. But no, LD is quickly carving out his own unique sound.
After his debut release on Ringo Records with Clockwatching and Swing Dat Skirt, LD aka Leon Day pushes his distinctive sound still further with an original and remix production. Green Ranger eschews the half step template in favour of a more polyrhythmic structure, whilst keeping his foot firmly down on the pulsing and probing effects.
On the flip, LD tackles Sully’s ravetastic Give Me Up (2nd Drop 004), transforming this nostalgic slice of euphoric dubstep into a deadly piece of future soca dub. Riffling soca percussion would feel more at home behind a precession float at Notting Hill Carnival, if it wasn’t for the addictive descending bassline motif, which shakes every soundsystem in the country to the ground.
