Blackdown, AKA esteemed journalist Martin Clark, has always utilized a jumble of ideas and themes, from urban sprawl to ethnography to the science of rhythm, and the music he makes with his partner Dusk is just as dense and overloaded with information. These are artists who saw (and chronicled) the spring of dubstep, and have often, through curating the Keysound label, helped to nudge it along to further adventurous places. Their debut LP Margins Music was a stunning portrait of London's darkest corners, something that hybridized grime, dubstep and garage.
