Having released his debut E.P ‘RADIO BASS’ earlier this year, Delhite, EAST STEPPER is introduces us to a second release of the year. ‘BLUE LEAF’ is the title of his first full length album and like the EP, if you’re expecting some mechanical dubstep where it sounds like Optimus Prime and Bubble-Bee arguing about the meaning of life, you can minimise this screen now.
‘BLUE LEAF’ is what you could call the next step in the evolution of bass music in India. Combining the bass aesthetics with lo-fi sounds with other interesting components like samples of mandir bells, Baul musicians in West Bengal and Buskers. It’s these elements that give his tracks character This all accumulates into a sound that suits the personality of EAST STEPPER.
This eight track album is in places soulful with just enough inspiration from dubstep and drum n bass to keep them interesting. This wasn’t a one time listen for me; I had to have on rotation a good few times before understanding what this record is about. The beauty is … not conforming to the fads.
Looking forward to music innovation from EAST STEPPER …
