16bit - Dinosaurs
Someone actually read my last blog post, in fact I got enough views to take me to about 30 from having 1000 views in all thanks to Skream and Echo Park for tweeting and sharing the post. So I felt like carrying on my posts by showcasing another artist that is releasing music on an Indie label ran by one of the undergrounds biggest commercial crossovers.
The artist this time is 16bit, a production duo - DRT and Kidnappa - who are signed to MTA Records, a record label run by Chase & Status. Their latest release on the label is a destructive dubstep tune by the name of Dinosaurs and it comes complete with a killer b-side and an unbelievably good video, both can be seen below;

16bit - Boston Cream
The video for the single is produced and animated by Kristofer Strom, a part of the collection of designers and artists by the name of Blinkart. More examples of his work can be seen on the link attached to his name above. The video itself is visually stunning playing out like a simple storyboard of various dinosaurs with the important addition of some sort of vicious hallucinogen. It is simply a brilliant video. And the song lives up to the anger and aggression of it's namesakes with some fantastic sound design and a distorted bassline that has become synonymous with the duo as well as the uniquely positioned drum's.
The talent of the producer's in question has caught the eye of some of the biggest acts, recently lending their production skills to artists like Professor Green and Bjork providing singles for both and supplying remixes for acts such as Chase & Status and Plan B. This along with their highly acclaimed skills as DJ's for both their live set's and their mixes for radio shows and released online (The Milky Pie Mix won the award for best mix from the Dubstep Forum in 2010). The future looks promising for any act on this label with Nero debuting both a single and album at the top of the UK Charts in recent weeks and although a much more underground and raw act their is no reason, with their diversity, why they can't emulate this success.
'Dinosaurs/Boston Cream' is out on the 29th August on MTA Records.
