Biscope – Let Your Love Grow

Yeti’s need love too.

An appropriately titled mix, as this does grow and expand the contemporary notion of lovestep. I know the last thing we need is another subgenre (and this is not the time or place to rehash the brostep debate) but lovestep is an apt term, crystallizing something significant going on in music right now; a lush, flourescent corner of dubstep, awash in gorgeous mid-heavy synths and female vocals that yearn, nourish, challenge and engage a tender part of the listeners consciousness. In a space usually dominated by buzzsaw noises and disembowling bass-drops, it’s refreshing to hear producers using the tropes of dubstep to tell a more hopeful, emotionally resonant story with their music. Beating audio swords into plowshares, as it were. . .

    Is it just me, or has that Modeselektor track been showing up in mixes a lot, lately? Ah, that makes me happy, I remember copping it from an "Electronic Music Sampler" that iTunes put out in conjunction with Facebook about 5-6 years ago, and it stands the test of time.

    Also, FYI: The SMD track is "Cruel Intentions" (feat. Beth Ditto). 😀

    Yeah Modeselektor is pretty damn timeless. I didn't know that track was them until recently though.

    And good catch on the SMD track – that's what I get for blindly copying + pasting from the soundcloud descrip 😉

    Modeselektor's Happy Birthday! was a bowel-shifting experience, nuff said. 200000 w/ TTC!? Sucker Pin?!! There are equal yet different permutations of hyphy distributed throughout the album.
