Released 16th March 2018
Founded in 2015 by dubstep forefather Sleeper, Crucial Recordings has continued to develop and strengthen its undeniable grip on the dubstep world with each release; never failing to act as an unyielding beacon within the scene for unearthing fresh, standard-setting talent. Leaping from strength to strength, this highly prolific imprint constantly delivers multifaceted and boundary shattering bass music through ingenious and unprecedented ways.
The latest addition to the label’s ever-expanding vision for multifaceted bass music comes from Rotterdam-based Hebbe, who has truly emerged from the shadows recently through releases on Subway Recordings, Artikal Music, DUPLOC and Version Collective. Regarded as the most promising up-and-comer in the Dutch dubstep scene, Hebbe sports an obscure, sound driven flow that aims to inject diversity and progress into today’s musical output. Keeping within a similar spirit, Hebbe’s CRUCIAL016 boasts two far reaching tracks, “Mad Hatter” and “Galata” that convey trailblazing bassweight through two very different formats. While “Mad Hatter” cuts through to the core with simplicity and impact, “Galata” equally enchants with smokey darkness and trenchlike depth, building upon Crucial Recordings’ irreplaceable position within the dubstep circuit.
