Praveen – Lovestep Mix Vols. 1 & 2 (2009/10)


Producer/DJ/Percussion Lab founder Praveen has turned out these two mixes over the past few months showcasing some of the best in sophisticated bass-centric electronica making the rounds these days. While I don’t know if I’m entirely sold on the ‘lovestep’ moniker, I do agree on something to differentiate these darker, more thoughtful exercises from the blown-out wider world of dubstep. These mixes feature tracks and artists (including big names like Martyn, Joy Orbison, Floating Points and Untold) who utilize subsonic frequencies and dub/2step influenced rhythms to invoke specific images and emotions rather than just destroy your speakers. Of course, that’s not to say that you couldn’t find these songs at your local club; they just succesfully ride the line between head-nodding, ass-shaking, and admirable electronic musicianship.
