A New Path
With several years kicking around in bands under his belt, the turn toward electronic music began for Reed a few years back. "I had started experimenting with electronic music and releasing the tracks for free download," he says. "By the summer, I felt confident enough to send a few emails to blogs that I thought might dig my stuff. Fortunately for me, they did! Shortly after getting some exposure, Warp got in touch with me and we slowly made arrangements to release what would become the Shaved EP."
If Shaved introduced babe Rainbow to the world as a practitioner of standard dubstep with a dark twist, the six-track Endless Path EP showcases a producer growing in leaps and bounds. "Every time I sit down to produce I try to do something a little different. I would say that Endless Path is slightly less dark and brooding than Shaved, but more importantly, I'd say it shows a greater range of emotion." This time out, Reed has definitely come into his own.
