Album Review

The initial release from the !K7-affiliated Cool in the Pool label is the first volume of its Songs for Endless Cities mix series, intended to document the developments in post-dubstep, as well as the satellite styles dubstep has absorbed and affected. Brackles, who has released tracks on Berkane Sol, Apple Pips, Planet Mu, and his own Blunted Robots, is one of post-dubstep’s finest DJs, but he forsakes his typical rush-inducing approach for a measured set.
