Come 03:25


Real Mad is a brand new artist hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa. His release for San Francisco’s MalLabel Music, “Come” is an attention grabbing debut recording for the young producer that bridges the gap between the growing US dubstep scene and the emerging movement in Africa. While Real Mad just started making tracks during the summer of 2010, there is a real maturity found on this collection that belies his rookie status.

The title track “Come” starts off with a slight pop feel complete with Autotuned vocal snippets before the big bass drop reminds listeners that this is a dubstep track. It makes for an excellent balance, as Real Mad balances restraint and sheen against a tough bass line with whooshing drops. The percussion is again finally chopped setting off polyrhythms galore that make this track a solid tune worth seeking out.

“Beverly Waves Her Hand Goodbye” fuses a heavy hip-hop downbeat with head banging drumstep percussion that pounds ominously. The melodies are a tasty mix of 8 bit sounds, rave stabs, and twisted synth lines overdriven to the point of fuzziness layered in to give the track an epic feel without being overly dark. The bass wobbles and pitches in all the right places and builds to an explosive saw tooth wave breakdown that sounds like chainsaws tearing through phone books.
