To put a fresh spin on a classic Dave Chappelle line, ‘Who are the five best dubstep producers of all-time? Think about it. Dion. Dion. Dion. Dion. And Dion.’ Well, ain’t that the truth! It seems like ever since Mr. Timmer made the executive decision to link up with Excision and the Rotten Records battalion (circa 2014), his stock has gone shooting through the roof. Truth be told, most music-listeners had never even heard of this rambunctious adolescent prior to his multiple appearances on Excision’s Shambhala 2014 Mix – always a massive release in its own right. Ever since that fateful day, the Dion Timmer hype has eclipsed unprecedented levels.
Most recently, he distributed a 5-track EP that is sure to make you view dubstep’s future in an entirely different light. By taking a brief trip to the past, this artist gives us a glimpse of what might very well be the next big trend in bass music. For those of you that don’t remember, when this constantly-mutating genre first rolled up on the shores of the United States, tunes similar to “Africa” dominated the spotlight. This old-school collab with Excision recaptures a moment in time that every dubstep diehard holds very near and dear to their hearts. Even the new generation has quickly developed a fond appreciation for this lost sound.
In addition to his mandatory Excision collaboration, Dion Timmer brings four other gargantuan bangers to the table. Beginning with the title track, “Plug Me In” immediately conjures up memories of his Agression, Pt. 1 EP – an absolute essential to anybody who’s been paying attention to this musician since the early days. Following those first couple tracks, he enlists Mayor Apeshit to add some major flavor to “Rip The Roof Down,” while PsoGnar applies his own personal touch to “Before The Fall.” To top off this rotund collection of songs, “Down With Me” leaves a lasting sensation that you won’t soon forget. Trust us when we advise you to be patient for the 2nd drop, it’s well worth it.
