EDITORS’ NOTES

The third EP from English DJ/producer Joshua Steele under the Flux Pavilion moniker plays like an evolution of his signature sound, which blends speedy dubstep with trap and electro-hop. Blow the Roof is an ambitious and appropriate title for a collection of wall-to-wall bangers. The opening cut, “One Two Three (Make Your Body Wanna),” wastes no time dropping a deep bass rumble with sternum-rattling results. But the chirpy melodic hooks here are what will take residence between your ears. “The Scientist” follows, paying homage to the King Tubby protégé of the same name; it's replete with an impressive vocal performance by Flux Pavilion. But rather than infuse the song with obvious dub trappings in the bass, he scoots these telltale genre styles upfront to the guitars while keeping a boomy wobble going for all the dancefloor freaks. Sway and P Money turn up and throw down some hyper-phrased rhymes in the Roma-flavored "Double Edge" before the title track makes good on its name with a dubstep hit that emphasizes more dub than step, all over alluring beats.

About Flux Pavilion

Known for his 2011 hit "Bass Cannon", English dubstep producer and DJ Joshua Steele took the name Flux Pavilion around 2008 when he released the track "Cheap Crisps" as a digital download. Steele had grown up in Towcester where his neighbors were like-minded producers Doctor P and Trolley Snatcha. At the time, all three had been playing in guitar-based bands together, but after downloading some music creation software, they agreed the future was digital and were set on their dubstep paths. Fast forward to 2010 and Flux Pavilion had made a name for himself with plenty of club hits, remixes, and DJ gigs, but that year's "I Can't Stop" took his career to another level. Two "fans" Steele met on a tour of America asked to sample the cut for their upcoming hip-hop album, and a year later "I Can't Stop" became the basis of "Who Gon Stop Me" on Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative effort Watch the Throne. Flux Pavilion's hit track "Bass Cannon" arrived that same year, along with a collaborative cut with Doctor P, "Super Bad." ~ David Jeffries
