"The first release on new Nottingham bass and steppa label Deeper Than Roots comes in the form of the well-regarded Congi, Tumble Audio, PNG and RedShift associated dubstep producer Fable, who unleashes his The Deeper than Roots EP, a record that combines the roots based sound of early era dub with the spacious, percussion led rolling subs of the DMZ and FWD>> dubstep sounds.
"Utilising classic dubwise and reggae samples to frame his tightly coiled percussion and bass influenced sound, Fable gently teases the mixing board in a distinctly Lee Perry-esque fashion, truly putting the DUB back into DUBstep. He brings the old school sound up to date applying hard hitting, yet reverb washed mid lines that perch on top of the EP's undulating subs, punctuating the producer’s minimal, dubby sound with moments of dread infused fullness.
"Although dark in nature, Fable’s music also contains melodic elements like reggae guitar twangs and melodica solos that act to temper the feelings of despair that the producer’s spacey, slow-mo sound evokes. The samples employed throughout are chopped to sit slightly off the grid, giving the tracks a woozy, heady feel that, when combined with liberal dashings of spring reverb and effective atmospheric work, create an intoxicating blend of dizzy bass music.
"Deeper than Roots was formed in 2014 by Origin One producer, Neon (Kevin Thompson). The imprint's sole aim is to capitalise and push Nottingham’s strong ingrained links and lineage with Caribbean sound system culture but bringing the traditional sound up to date by meshing its retro, soulful vibes with early-era UK dubstep culture and ‘Hardcore Continuum’ influences."
