Digital Dust // 2100-2200 17.06.12
As the UK Garage scene splintered into harder, darker and more aggressive styles in the early 2000s; many subgenres appeared. Names such as 8 bar, sublow and grime were thrown about. Then in 2002 Wiley released his seminal track 'Eskimo' and cemented a new strain of UKG. Coining the genre 'Eski', Wiley made some of the most influencial tracks of this time period using strange click, drips and clanks; and a focus on gliding square bass.
So for the first hour Dusty is going to look through some of Wiley's classic eski tracks along with producers who have adopted elements of the style and used them in their productions today. Featuring tunes from Jam City, Logos, Becoming Real and more.
