Ramadanman Ramadanman
In London, UK's ever-evolving dubstep scene, David Kennedy (aka Ramadanman) has surfaced, to great acclaim, offering his glitchy, experimental take on a sound that's spreading rapidly through the UK. Kennedy began delving into DJing at the age of 14, experimenting with deep house, jungle and hip-hop. Already the co-owner of Hessle Audio (along with Pangaea and Ben UFO), Ramadanman has steadily built his roster of artist remixes, including those for the likes of Howie B, Beat Pharmacy and Delphic. In 2009, alongside another dubstep favourite, DJ Chef, Ramadanman mixed the seventh instalment of Dubstep Allstars. The Ramadanman EP drifts and lingers in ambiance rather than building on something substantial, each track basking in the rich tones and discoveries embedded in the EP. Leaky faucet echoes plink through "Bleeper," the track holding a distorted, claustrophobic vibe until strident synths give way once again to glitchy darkness. "Don't Change For Me" drops deep, warbled shots of bass, while airy, staggered synths (in a Boards of Canada fashion) lace their way through iridescent, fleeting vocals. This is another step in the progression of dubstep. (Hessle Audio)
