MalLabel Music releases The Magic Hour LP by San Francisco dubstep duo Blackheart+Free Downloads
Free download Dialers
California is becoming the hub for an emerging mutant strain of dubstep that combines glitch, old school coastal rave breaks, and outdoor sound system culture. Think Burning Man meets Road Warrior and you’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the engine that drives veteran MalLabel recording artists Blackheart. Hailing from San Francisco, this pair of ne’er-do-wells certainly brings the hammer down with tough beats on this seven track mini LP, teaming up with some of the US dubstep scene’s biggest talents Bukkha, Ceeker, and Rastatronics to indulge in a festival of paint peeling bass lines and coarse synth melodies. But Blackheart also has the skills to make it funky, laying down hard core hyphy beats that pay close attention to the ghettotech pioneers from Detroit and the new school cats from Baltimore. But what makes these guys so amazing is their synth work – this album is comprised entirely of melodies sculpted out of pure techno influences – from old R&S to new Perlon; Blackheart hasn’t forgotten that dubstep is still music for dancing. “Creature Funk” opens the album with raunchy, chuggy, driving stepper while “Dialers,” “Madhouse,” and “Kik Mah Boots” provide the straight-forward, driving anthems.

Formed in 2007, the San Francisco duo BLACKHEART has a unique vision of dubstep filtered through through the classic coastal break sound and the West Coast’s ubiquitous outdoor sound system culture, While their sound may be difficult to categorize, their ability to pack and rock a dance floor is undeniable. Each member has a diverse history in San Francisco’s electronic dance music scene, and as BLACKHEART have taken root in the burgeoning West Coast dubstep scene. The duo already has a discography that spans an handful of some of the US’s most prized labels, including Full Melt, Bassism, Filthy Digital, Savory Audio, and also MalLabel. Their remixes of 6Blocc’s “Bad Boy” and DZ’s “Untitled Facemelter” on MalLabel proved to be dancefloor destroyers, and their latest – “The Magic Hour LP” – is filled from beginning to end with the same vibey West Coast darkness. You can usually catch BLACKHEART live at either a MalLabel or Redline underground event – every 6-8 weeks somewhere around San Francisco. Expect more noise in the future from this rising pair of standouts.
