If you haven’t heard yet about David Heartbreak, you soon will. Mixing dubstep and reggae, the producer has constructed a unique sound that is fresh yet familiar. On his new track “Rebel,” you can hear the influence of Skrillex and Diplo as well as a profoundly strong ragga influence. Leftside’s vocals are chopped and spliced with such pristine severity that it feels like he is channeling BT doing nano/stutter edits circa “Somnambulist.” The track is being labelled as “future dub,” so it’s only a matter of time until there is a MOS compilation called “Best of Future Dub” as well a track popping out featuring Lil’ Jon or Pitbull.
