It seems like a good century ago at this point, but dubstep was at the vanguard of sounds that ushered electronic music into the forefront of the musical landscape. Now that the scene has fractured into innumerable sub genres that, rightfully or not, dubstep has somewhat faded from view.
Pierce and 2SCOOPS, however, have teamed up for thunderous new single that harkens back to the days when dubstep reign supreme. “SPLIT” feels fresh in its deployment of crushing sonic waves and detuned vocals. It’s a testament that any sound can be fresh and modern when placed in the right hands.
