DJ Ashes explores new flavors in Dubstep


Not many Dubstep producers go beyond playing around with wobbly baselines, and I am always happy to find good exceptions from the norm. DJ Ashes from Ottawa (Canada) is such an exception. I had already used his track “Dubvine” in my mix “Speedbumps“, so some of you might have heard this awesome funky-jazzy sound already.

Apparently, he is also reading Sweet Headache, and he made me aware of his most recent release “Grimey”. This one’s a totally different beast though. Very dynamic, slow and LOUD!

In my opinion, his sound is so good that it’s hard to believe that this guy is still unsigned. Shame on you, Dubstep labels of the world!

If you want to know more about this guy, check out his interviews with Grime Syndicate and 507Projex!
