Trolley Snatcha has put out one of the most impressive dubstep releases of 2012. The Subtext EP is helping the Northampton UK producer make a dent in the increasingly saturated dubstep market. Although, the market for dubstep is filled with plenty viable options, Zack Kemp has delved into a beautifully executed world of appropriate filth. Unlike many producers, his sound doesn’t hang in the balance of music and garbage. Instead, Trolley Snatcha has managed to create tasteful filth. It’s quite the oxymoron if you think about it. I know it’s hard to understand how aggressive and ear-shattering dubstep can be considered tasteful. But if you think about it, there is some serious garbage going around the Internet these days. Trolley Snatcha has continuously proven that he demands the respect of the dubstep community.
The five track EP consists of ferocious rhythms and meticulously constructed beats. The title track, “Make My Whole World” begins with a mesmerizing 808 beat and drops into what’s sure to be an anthem for this month. On the other hand, “Nasty Shit” proves to be quite literally, the nastiest track of the entire EP. To round out opposing sounds of the two more diverse tracks, Trolley Snatcha constructed a tune that seems shockingly similar to a Wolfgang Gartner style production. The “call-and-response” technique makes “The Jungle” an interesting cocktail of pounding electro and earth shattering dubstep. Not a bad combination.
You can discuss the state of dubstep all you want, but one thing is certain, Trolley Snatcha has just left a lasting mark on this year’s dubstep scene. Experience it for yourself.
