FTC Discovery Nov # 2: Fantastic Mr Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox
Gutted that Guardian Band of the day just pipped me to the post on this one, also record of the week in DJ Mag cos like James Blake (who championed this guy) Fantastic Mr Fox is a cross genre maniac... Dubstep? Rn'b? Soul? anyone's guess? The Evelyn EP takes handclaps, synth, dense layers of competing vocals and beats which enhances the once simplistic nature of the dubstep template to a classical/digital style orchestra. It must be labourious for Mr Fox, who claimed in the aforementioned article that tracks often require hours of work on single sounds and often hundreds of tracks exist within one. Dubstep's not dead, its merely growing a new body.
