Review: Kryptic Minds — One Of Us

Ever since Blackdown interviewed Kryptic Minds and posted a mix of material from the forthcoming CD in May, I’ve been waiting patiently for the CD “One Of Us” to come out. It’s out now and was worth the wait.

Every so often someone figures out for themselves how to use the spaces between the notes to conveny feelings notes cannot. Kryptic Minds’ take on dubstep with this release is one of those. This is really simple music, though not simplistic. A bare beat, samples that float in and out at their own deliberate pace, and warm sustained bass tones define a moody, meditative sonic landscape. These tracks signify without shouting out; they’re like roiling dark clouds telling the story of the rain and lightning to come.
