"The most-promising up-and-comer in the Dutch dubstep scene has to be Hebbe without any doubt. Back in 2014 the Rotterdamer attended a Give It Dub edition as a steady dubstep enthusiast. Yet that experience proved to be the main inspiration to begin experimenting with dubstep. Hebbe truly emerged from the shadows through the signing on Subway Recordings, who were one of the first to discover his obscure sound driven by a very typical flow." [Words by DUPLOC]
