Duploc 5Yrs review
On the 2nd of October 2017 the independent Belgian platform celebrates its 5th anniversary by releasing its debut album. duploc.com, one of the leading references for dubstep worldwide, put together a 15-track compilation full of exclusive content from artists they regularly have been working with. Expect the typical residents such as ENiGMA Dubz, Bukez Finezt, Requake and SubFiltronik - though as usual they also included quite a few upcoming talents.
In general, the album is a proper reflection of both the sound as well as the artists duploc.com has been pushing; since day one they have been known for featuring a rather unconventional and uncommon side of the genre.
Originally duploc.com launched its brand in 2012 as a promotional outlet. Meanwhile they expanded to a currently 50.000-strong community with their own live events, a prestigious record label and a well-respected online magazine. By releasing this debut album, duploc.com looks more determined and passionate than ever to show the listener a true and complete definition of dubstep.
a1. ENiGMA Dubz - Dirty South
The first artist on the album does not need any further introduction. He has been working together with Belgium’s most authentic dubstep platform since its very beginning. Formerly signed to duploc.com’s record label, ENiGMA Dubz’ presence on the “5 Years of duploc.com album” is quite logical nevertheless profoundly essential. In fact “Dirty South” is his first dubstep track available on 12 inch.
a2. LOST - Turmoil
Signee LOST entrusts the “5 Years of duploc.com album” with a track in his typical murky style. “Turmoil” is coming straight out of the studio and what is better than something hot of the press to celebrate the fifth birthday of duploc.com with. The London born and bred HENCH-affiliated hasn’t seen any of his tracks on hot wax since 2011. Until now.
a3. Bukez Finezt - Real 2 Real
Bukez Finezt is a versatile producer who likes to juggle with different styles within dubstep. That’s exactly the reason why the DEEP MEDi signee fits so smoothly on duploc.com’s record label. Via the “5 Years of duploc.com album”, the Belgian team proudly announces the official debut of the Finezt German in town on a 12" record.
b1. Requake - Fear
Hailing from the capital of Europe, dubstep producers Requake always have had a special connection with duploc.com as they eventually were signed to the record label in 2015. Fast forward to the 2nd of October 2017, the track “Fear” will be their first production ever to be released on vinyl.
b2. ARtroniks - Extinction
It would be unimaginable to leave out long-time resident ARtroniks of duploc.com’s debut album. Since the Belgian producer was signed, he appeared on three(!) singles of the imprint thus far. Anno 2017 ARtroniks enthusiastically celebrates along by releasing his highly anticipated dubplate “Extinction” on a vinyl record.
