The Ilictronix guide to Dubstep, part 2: Joy Orbison

Kick. Wobble wobble wobble. Snare. Wobble wobble wobble. Lather, rinse, repeat. Even for the most seasoned dubstep fans, this must get a bit boring after a while. This is where new kid on the blog Joy Orbison comes in. Joy Orbison is the anti-bassline. He takes dubstep back to its roots with deep, garage-influenced cuts, pieced together from tiny vocal snippets, nice clean breakbeats and rushing synths. Like Burial, but more euphoric. His debut single "Hyph Mngo" (pronounced "Hype Mango") is like a guardian angel saving dubstep from the doom and gloom. With remixes of José James and Four Tet under his belt, this guy is going places, make no mistake.
