In an unforgiving Universe that can be lonely, dark and cold, this man’s music shines like a beacon directing would be lost souls to a brighter world, one where melodies and musicality are not forgotten. His is a world full of light and wonder where music does not always have to signify destruction, violence, or angst. Together, AaA, born Erich Vickers, with support from Dubstep veteran badbwoy, Atom Bass, has blessed Betamorph Recordings with four fresh creations designed to reopen the minds and ears of listeners everywhere, and remind them that the dance floor is for dancing and the music is supposed to move you. This is the “Wonder” E.P.
Throughout this exquisite series of Dubstep gems, listeners will notice that these two are not settling for the usual sounds, sequences and samples regurgitated by so many artists. AaA’s sound is immediately recognizable by beautiful keys. Oh the keys! It is so refreshing to hear upfront Dubstep that is not one-dimensionally raspy just for filth’s sake. For instance, in “Reality” the very first hit is a beautiful combo of air, kick, and piano that immediately draws you into the sound-scape which is rounded out by a filtered guitarish bass that walks the melody right into the beat. From there, a nymph-like voice calls out to let her “soothe your pain” and “ease your strain” ,all the while supported in the background by those amazing keys leading us to the most amazing drop. In “The Last Light” ,the piano solo in the intro is even more pure as it lays the key and melody foundation for the rest of the piece which all of a sudden takes off into a bouncing ball of energy with high pitched sweeps and plenty of bottom to keep faces in permanent “screw-mode”. Without revealing too much, I’ll simply say that this E.P. combines beauty, grime, and technique to produce some of the sickest sounds the genre has seen. Betamorph Recordings is beyond proud to represent AaA and Atom Bass as they drop the “Wonder” E.P.
