Ricorb is oozing with talent. His unique and diverse blend of cross-genre sounds place him high in my list of up-and-coming producers. I’ve dabbled with other genre’s in my short-lived production career, but have never achieved such prowess over the stereo space. His unique take on Jam City’s ‘Magic Drops’ opened my eyes to a squelchy and bubbling take on drumstep. The bassline guzzles you right up, spitting you out front row and center to the world’s first bass-driven slurpee machine. This wonky and broken track, seemly classified as ‘Dribblestep,’ might just send you on a bender. Or, it might have you cross-eyed in front of a mirror, as you ask yourself, ‘How did I get here?’ I’m not sure whether to bust out a mean two step, or to melt into a couch whilst sippin’ on some real proper lean. Dare I say the sounds are a bit silly? Perhaps I’m into that. Perhaps you are too?
His latest track, entitled ‘UK Gunky’ is somber and creepy, but it’s progression reveals that there is more to the journey than just heavyhearted, wandering synth trails. There is a light at the end of the tunnel after all, and it’s emanating confident portions of bass!
And this last one was revolutionary for me. I’ve known about Squire of Gothos for awhile — their intensely off-kilter and wonky wobbles didn’t resonate with me until I willingly dove into fidget. Anyways, Ricorb took this beast, flipped it, dipped it, and revealed one of my favorite dubstep tracks of all time. Just wait till 3:04 when the BPM drops and shit gets real gangster, REAL FAST. Get low girl, get low.
