D/B Recommended: Filastine @ Raum Berlin | Saturday, 16.06.2012

Outernational bass music nomad FILASTINE ups the ante with £00T. Fractured post-dubstep beat innovations support delicate string arrangements. Overdriven bass synths battle pentatonic gong patterns. Listen closely and listen loud.

Looting from the coffers of hip-hop, moombahton, dubstep and cumbia, Filastine keeps the bass pressure pumping and drums up front. But any similarity to club music genres ends quickly.

While a growing tropical bass movement hypes a pan-global dance party, Filastine blazes a different path. Intricate polyrhythms, muted balkan trumpets, ephemeral soundscapes, and unique vocal contributions push this album off the known map into uncharted musical territory.

Filastine | Colony Collapse

A new re-tooled live set uses custom software to pull off some deep AV madness, and sees Filastine expanding to tour as a duo, joined onstage by a vocalist Nova.

Filastine is supported by DJ Mohak, Dazid, Lebowski, Luc Masera and VJ Ivtephx.
