While standing as a fairly new addition to the bass music circuit, UK based Sub:Clef Records boasts a well established and unwaveringly clear mission: to bring forth and challenge concepts of UK sound system music using detail, intricacy and innovation while always evoking groove, bass and soul. With each release, the record label uses its experimental, bass heavy roots to explore the blurred genre boundaries of early dubstep, neo soul, electronica and dub; born in the cultural melting pot of South London. The imprint is gearing up for its second vinyl release on February 9 from the labelhead himself, Cid Poitier; a three-track collection featuring the enchanting vocal stylings of Wends.
Cid Poitier’s forthcoming release, Distraction ft. Wends / Weak (SUBCLEF002) stands as the newest showcase of the producer’s ever growing musical prowess—and yet another notch of Sub:Clef’s belt since its debut 12-inch Zeitgeist / Grim Reaper this past June. Keeping the upward momentum flowing, SUBCLEF002 presents a collection of new-school dubstep for the old-school minds driven by heavy sub bass pressure and alluring vocals.
