New Filter Dread – “Stolen Dub”


Taking cues from pirate radio and the Cubase DAW, Filter Dread will make his much anticipated debut on RAMP Recordings with the MIDI Space EP. Set for a June 23 release date, the EP matches the frantic breakbeat-led madness of jungle with off-kilter grime futurism, drawing impressive directness out of potential disarray. A few weeks ago, we heard “Stolen Dub” in the Birmingham-based producer’s Astral Plane mix and the iniquitous song sets the stage for MIDI Space perfectly. It’s dark and industrial, but also brings to mind technological prowess and other worlds. Firmly grounded in the work of outlaw technicians years past, the song encapsulates the inherent ephemerality of the pirate radio form.
