As a DJ, promoter and producer, Version boss Orson has been championing dubstep in Germany longer than almost anyone else (fact: he made his production debut way back in 2010!). These days he's an established figure internationally, releasing music that's every bit as good as that made by the sound's British pioneers. "Life Gamble", which opens his latest EP, is something of a peach. Built around a headline grabbing, digi-dub style bassline, the track is deep, dreamy and melodious, with ambient sound washes offering a neat contrast to his ricocheting dubstep beats and blazed audio textures. Flipside "12:09", meanwhile, is a far more straightforward proposition, with the German bass-head serving up an intoxicating dancefloor stepper rich in stabbing bass and echoing electronics.
