Mad Decent’s (through it’s Jeffrees imprint) newest rising dubstep star, Raf Riley, just launched a free new three song EP on one of dub’s most dependable labels. Not a bad start!
The three tracks on the Dog Unit EP drag you from what felt like a dubby version of Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” Halloween intro, to a middle-eastern infused “Dog Unit 2,” that’s replete with laser noises, fine drops, and ample dog bark sounds that send us straight into the epic movie, heroic battle, dubstep theme.
Raf Riley is London’s 22 year old Rafael Greifer. He’s done work with Etta Bond and Labrinth, put out a number of originals as well as some remixes, but this promises to be his biggest yet. Look for more in the coming months from Raf.
