DJ Various, aka Various Production, has delivered some incredible music over the past couple of decades. A lot of it went under the radar.
‘Hater’, self-released in 2004, also appeared on The World Is Gone in 2006, which blended the industrial rhythms of Dubstep with folksy vocals.
The song starts off with harsh, futuristic factory sounds, before developing into a soulful, spacious masterpiece.
The bassline picks its moments, lying low before unfurling into action. The off kilter beat actually plays really well into the catchy melody – it’s a bit of a different one, but well worth a listen!
