Words and beats with one of the preeminent chroniclers of UK bass music. Some think that writing and electronic music just don’t mix. It’s writers like Blackdown that emphatically disprove the point. As one of the most high-profile boosters of grime and dubstep in its earliest days, he helped to introduce personalities like Dizzee Rascal, Wiley and Burial to the wider world largely via his blog and the influential magazine Deuce. Nowadays Blackdown writes for bigger outlets, namely Pitchfork and NME, but his time is also now split between writing about the music he loves, and supporting it directly through his Keysound Recordings label, which has put out music from the likes of Skream, DVA and LV. That, and his own productions alongside partner-in-grime Dusk. But where did it all start electronic music-wise for Blackdown? Techno, of course. ”
