Kahn - Dread

'Dread' represents the electronic music marriage I've always wanted. Seminal dubstep label Deep Medi will be releasing a track by Kahn, a producer who I've been digging heavily and actively following for a good year now. This is a profoundly satisfying moment because both parties have been huge on my musical radar and it's awesome to see Kahn's quality of work be acknowledged by Mala, Deep Medi boss and famed producer in his own right.

The track itself brings serious bassweight with a dancehall vibe; a coarsely voiced MC starts off the track in fine dub form. The toasting soon cuts out and gives way to a minimal, dark arrangement, featuring a rolling sub and delay drenched hits. 'Dread' is ultimately some of Kahn's weightiest work (on par with 'Way Mi Defend'), perfect for a release on Mala's imprint.
