Deeply entwined within dubstep’s inception and subsequent global boom, London-based DJ and producer Alex Crawford, aka The Others, stands as one of the genre’s most loyal figureheads. With releases on some of dubstep’s most notable labels, including Tempa, Wheel & Deal, Sub Soldiers and Dub Police, The Others has generated one of dubstep’s more extensive and prolific music catalogues, including genre staples like “Freakshow,” “Africa VIP,” “Fall Out” featuring Emalkay, and his timeless rendition of Breakage and Newham Generals’ track “Hard” that he produced with Caspa. The Others’ newest addition to his lengthy list of dubstep releases is his four-track Lions & Tigers & Snares EP, released through Subway Music.
The Others’ Lions & Tigers & Snares EP is a strictly 140 bpm affair, a diverse collection of gnawing sounds and interesting sonic structures that blend infectious old-school dubstep attitude with a new-school format. Each of the EP’s four tracks delivers innovative variations of that timeless UK wobble that bass heads crave, making Lions & Tigers & Snares a must-have release for dubstep lovers both old and new.
