BunZer0 is mainland Europes answer to Americas Dubstep Ambassador Joe Nice. Without Bens efforts, countless producers would be still hidden away in bedrooms across the continent and many dubstep fans wouldnt have found their way to the genre. The Belgian is an integral part of helping the dubstep sound evolve - both as a renowned DJ (with a hugely respected show on SUB FM) and as a influential talent spotter. Weve been working with Ben for a good few years now, featuring him on the site and our music platforms many times before connecting to release Melancholy on 2013s FKOFUn/Known01. And, perhaps testament to BunZer0s production abilities, he was the only musician to retain a spot on FKOFUn/Known02 the following year
The four tracks in FKOFd017 do well to summarise BunZer0s musical expertise. Opening with Burner, a fiery affair that teases for just under a minute before thundering through its drops with a tidal wave of sub. Schizo deftly demonstrates BunZer0s ability to create world class atmospherics - a track weve been testing on some of the finest systems across Europe. It has yet to disappoint. The third inclusion, Fracture, is perhaps our favourite on the release, somehow managing to merge inspiration from a number of genres - all the while sounding fresh, complex and exciting. But its the final track on FKOFd017 that will garner the most attention. First Lesson is a delight - a relaxed yet infectious stepper that commands the groove. Its a simple production, but executed brilliantly. A tune for those that know
With another superb release, BunZer0 has added to his growing back catalogue with four tracks that highlight his production expertise. Its an EP that mixes the old with new - reinforcing the Belgians tastemaker credentials.
