Canadian producers JELO and FWLR have teamed up with Bishops Bloc Records to release their two track EP Birth of the Anti Hero. Originally premiered on The Music Ninja, Birth of the Anti Hero is a refreshing re-interpretation of the classic dubstep sound and has already garnered support from Hunter Siegel, Ill Gates, and Corvad.
The grinding bass and European electro sound that “Birth Of The Anti Hero” expresses is making a comeback, especially within the states. It may be just at its beginning, but the comeback will continue as long as acts churn out records like this one. It’s dirty, it’s mean and it’s incredibly intoxicating with its fervor. With the remix we get some added vocal elements that make for a nice touch as a flip for the original. Tyler Trew – The Music Ninja

FWLR & JELO never fail at creating maximum impact dance floor smashers and this is no less than that. Individually they have long spanning careers that see them at the top of their game when it comes to djng and production. Two true masters combining their strengths only takes us one more level closer to dark bass nirvana. Hard hitting drums, heavy dubstep and drum n bass bass lines and even some 90’s nu-metal guitar influences layered with a middle eastern flavour combine to create a multi genre mind bending journey through bass. Starting out in the “Rezz” and “Black Gummy” bass house territory and eventually evolving into a drum & bass song before winding back to its 4/4 origins there are twists and turns galore without ever losing focus. This song is about the birth of a new hero, the underdog, the unexpected saviour, something we can all relate to wishing for at this time in history. On the B Side the former Hugsnotdrugs frontman Fear The Priest has pulled two more musical collaborators from his seemingly never ending supply to create an industrial glitch hop nu-metal hiphop remix of anthemic proportions. Twisting the original track into something of a chaotic industrial glitch hop song before the entirely appropriate and ethereal vocals of Rani Chatoorgoon take hold of your soul. Dustin Wareham’s rapping style grabs you by the frontal lobe with his message about the “privilege” of being born into money and doing more damage than good. Rani and Dustin take turns delving deeper into the philosophy of the original song and come out giving Evanescence and Kanye West a run for their money. Considering how young Bishops Bloc Records is itself this is an impressively mature release that sounds and feels good. We look forward to hearing more from all of these collaborators.
