Bristol-based Vaun marks his return to Mindstep Music with a 6 track Ep of blissfully melodic, summery dubstep, tinged with a touching melancholy.
Featuring another stellar vocal contribution from Animai, who featured on his last single for the label, Taking Over, and vocal contributions from Sarah Zad and Ill Chill, Vaun once again shows his mastery when it comes working with a diverse range of vocalists.
At a time when the “dungeon” sound is starting to become formulaic and soulless, the Sidelines EP is mercifully free of growling reese basslines, opting instead for warm subs, lush pads, emotive vocals to enagage the listener, reminding us that there’s much more range to dubstep than heads-down dark vibes.
An essential release, arriving just in time for the last days of summer, with all the wistful yearning the change of season brings.
