Chronical 03:12
Juke Steppin 03:34


For his third in a solid sequence of EPs for 2020, Riddim Fernandez hits yet another stride, focusing an acute, inscrutable methodology.

Opening with a characteristic punchy roller, 'Chronical' sets up a fierce dark motion from the opening percussion hits. Deep subs and half time dub breaks instantly blast off and hold steady throughout this charged intro.

Riddim Fernandez has a knack for dreamy emotional dubscapes that evoke a strong sense of longing. This instrumental dub of 'People You Shoulda Known' may be the strongest example yet of his beautiful, aching signature vibe.

'Juke Steppin' picks up the mood instantly and incites some fierce, focused bass drones and pulverizing grooves under an unimposing atmosphere that alternates from light, fluffy and airy, to mysterious and menacing.

'Moonlight Dancehall' continues a floor-focused pace, psychedelic echoes and soundclash elements injected through a sparse and scattered set of dancehall beats.

'Droppin It Low' is yet another heater. The hard accented rhythms propel an unusual bass pattern that alternates between mid range punch and thick low subs under a blanket of classic chord stabs and bawdy rhymes.

'Wuk Up At Night' shows off some expansive sound design and the Riddim Fernandez school of sparse atmospheric arrangement. The absurd contruction of beats is subject to some equally interesting processing, none of which lays back in this drum focused stomper.

'People You Shoulda Known' makes a reprisal, this time with a vocal section that puts appropriate words to the brooding melancholy of the composition, rounding out this clutching assembly of powerhouse dubs.

Riddim Fernandez started out making & performing beats using an old groove box with live hand drumming, soon progressing as a vinyl DJ & then onto electronic music production. He now uses analog drum machines, synths, & guitar FX to craft his own dub goodness. Riddim is into all things funky & melodic, rooted in 90s hiphop while loving the mellower dubstep, but will remain a junglist at heart. ... more
