Hailing from the spiritual home of dubstep and signed to Punch Drunk - the UK's foremost dubstep label - you might think Bristol’s Guido would be typecast. Yet here, with his languid and jazz-infused mix, RESONANCE, Guido proves that there is more to dubstep than meets the eye - or should that be ear?
It’s no surprise really that Guido stand apart from his better-known dubstep label -mates Joker and Gemmy. Real name Guy Middleton, Guido is a trained jazz and classical pianist who cites the soundtracks of epic fantasy computer games like Final Fantasy as one of his main influences.
Guido made this mix for us in the midst of autumn - looking out his window and soaking in the atmosphere - and it's this ambient vibe that permeates this mix, which is built around the ‘genius progression’ of Franck Roger’s track ‘Solo Man’ and one of Guido's favourite peices of music, ‘From Gagarin’s Point Of View’ by Max.Bab.
If you thought easy-listening and dubstep were mutually exclusive then RESONANCE proves otherwise.
