The Earth Bleed EP is deep and brooding and at other times playful, humorous and uplifting. ‘
Dov1’s original mix of ‘Earth Bleed’ delves into ever expanding basslines and organic textures at times reminiscent of volcanic fissures and atmospheric rips.
One of USA’s pioneers of electronica, namely ‘Single Cell Orchestra’ takes things even deeper ‘into the darkness’ with a remix of squelchy basslines and a steady groove. Rounding out the remixes of the title track is LayerZ (also known as Audiovoid) delivers a version that is ghostly, haunting and yet helps dig us out of the deep pit of bass with rolling almost melodic basslines. Moving onwards the EP also features a collaboration track with Canadian breaks, dubstep, glitch, techno, electro producer / man of the moment, ill.gates, the track is almost theatrical in nature, with clear dubstep influences, lots of field recording and sound design and also picking up the pace a little and showing much variety in beats and percussion. The EP is rounded of with an uplifting midtempo breakbeat track that is great for something to round off a night.
Dov1 is known as a genre pusher, from importing-exporting and selling some of the first ‘Nubreaks’, ‘Dubstep’ & ‘Glitch Hop’ to / from USA and throwing San Francisco’s first dedicated ‘breaks’ weekly in the nineties, to selecting and releasing music for multiple labels including his own, namely ‘Muti Music’. Recently producing dubstep remixes for Sub Swara on Low Motion Recordings and experimental / glitch remixes of Posthuman and Welder on Myuzyk and Cyberset Music respectively, Dov1 now emerges from the shadows with an EP of dubstep and midtempo breaks that is a journey of intense emotions.
