FRAGMENTS // Submotion Orchestra

sanj.k October 6, 2012 music, the latest Comments

Born out of a response to an Arts Council commission for a live dubstep work to be staged in Yorkminster Cathedral, Submotion Orchestra are a seven piece collective who have paved a new direction for dubstep to follow.

Their 2011 debut album ‘Finest Hour’ brought together opulent bass, full orchestration, broken drum’n’bass and dubstep. An assortment of genres all stitched up seamlessly providing an effortless journey through the record.

The new release, ‘FRAGMENTS’ is continuing exploration of the development of orchestral progression into post dubstep, but this time they’ve broaden the musical palette by allowing jazz to take more of a central role. Compared to the first record, there’s a lot more synth textures, expansive sounds and hints of lo-fi distortions.

Adding to the delight, here three remixes of the track ‘Blind Spot’
