Review - Flux Pavilion - Blow The Roof
Flux Pavilion is very quietly becoming the next big thing in the dubstep/electro/dance craze that has swept the world.
You may not have heard of him, but trust me, FP is a big deal. Lately he has been getting some notice from a guest spot on Major Lazer’s latest single, “Jah No Partial”. Flux is a producer as well, so you can’t hear him singing or see him in the video per se, but one listen to ‘Blow The Roof’ and then a second go at “Jah No Partial” and his presence is undeniable.
Dubstep has popped up everywhere. It used to be an underground thing, but when Britney Spears starts throwing it into breakdowns and choruses, you know that a movement has peaked, right? Usually, but not necessarily so in this case. Flux isn’t your typical dubstepper; rather, he uses the ‘step as (forgive my writing) his first step to so much more (I just had to).
‘Blow The Roof’ is a blend of all things interesting and unique that you haven’t heard on a dubstep album. Electro, rapping, hip hop swagger and samples and beats that came from god knows where. Almost every song would need a dash after the word dubstep to fully complete its title. Dubstep-hop. Electro-dub. Indie-house-step. You get the point.
If the mainstream has taken this genre too quickly, Flux is taking it back and making it new again.
Major Lazer would be so proud of this record.
Listen to: everything.
