Happy Friday everybody! With Halloween right around the corner, we thought there could be nothing better than to bring the sounds of Chestplate Records to your attention. The label hosts some of the darkest sounds in circulation, and is no secret to those who keep up with scene. Founded by the one and only, Distance, Chestplate Records lets their music speak for itself. The labels arsenal or artists consists of Distance, Cyrus, Tunnidge, District, and the labels newest member, Sleeper. Each and every one of these guys puts out some of the heaviest bassweight on the market. Distances reputation in the dubstep world is one comparable to Skream, Benga, or Pinch. In other words, HE”S HUGE. His backround of heavy metal and industrial music gives his sound an element that sets him apart from anybody else. What that element is I cannot describe with words, but take a listen to a couple of tunes and it becomes very clear that this man is a pioneer. His forthcoming EP, titled Meanstreak, has been one of the most anticipated releases of 2011. Within 24 hours of the preorders opening up, every 12″ pressed, was sold!! Distance and the rest of the Chestplate crew have made a HUGE imprint on ‘dubstep’ since it’s early beginnings and will continue to do so with the additions of artists like District and Sleeper. Below you will find soundcloud links to the Meanstreak EP and the rest of the Chestplate family. You can preorder the digital versions of Meanstreak here: http://www.surus.co.uk/chestplate/meanstreak-ep-14553.aspx , SO GET ON IT.
