ENiGMA Dubz has been pushing the boundaries of bass music since he burst onto the scene more than a decade ago. On new album Awakening his sonic palette has expanded to include liquid drum & bass, trap, downtempo electronica and future garage - alongside the dubstep with which he made his name. The result is an extraordinarily accomplished and rewarding album from an artist with unaccustomed talent and vision.
Released on Morii Records this spring, Awakening is a phenomenal accomplishment. Even if you think you know ENiGMA Dubz the sheer scope of musical ideas is likely to take your breath away. And if you’re a newcomer to his music, prepare to be blown away.
"Awakening is my fifth album under ENiGMA Dubz, and it’s a moment in my career to truly showcase where I’m at as a bass music producer."

We don't skip cat numbers around here. It was predestined that ENiGMA Dubz would appear on the DUPLOC050 milestone release. The Birmingham based dubstep don has been working with us since literally the first day of the YouTube channel. Almost 10 years later ENiGMA Dubz is a well established artist and is regularly featured on his home labels DUPLOC, Deep Dark & Dangerous as well as his very own imprint Morii Records.
Where "40 Fathoms" and "Silverback" are sound system shellers, "Earth Giants" runs on a heavier vibe while the digital bonus track "Too Close To The Sun" is a melodious masterpiece. All by all his DUPLOC050 shows how strongly versatile ENiGMA Dubz' sound is.

Take a Deep, Dark & Dangerous interstellar voyage far into the Cosmos with ENiGMA Dubz, the newest signing to Truth’s burgeoning label.
With this EP, ENiGMA DUbz transports the listener to the far flung reaches of the universe with his otherworldly sound design and top notch production. Beginning our travels at “Area 51”, you can hear the alien experiments, top secret technological research and conspiricys being hatched. From there, we’re taken deep “Into The Ground” where everything becomes very etherial, beautiful synthwork, vocal layering and crispy breakbeats.
Three tracks in and we’re launched into “The Cosmos”, be prepared to marvel at all it’s mysteries, this one’s a straight vibe, chilling yet beautiful melodies give way hugely grand and glorious saw synth lead lines.
By now we’re deep into “No Sleep” mode and everything is starting to get a little intense, much like this track, far from home with no hope of return.
The EP rounds out with “Tunnel Vision”, a digital only track on an otherwise vinyl-pressed release. This one will suck you into the wormhole then spit you out on the other side, wherever that may be… this Cosmos, or maybe another."
