M.Fenn is a 19-Year old producer from the United Kingdom, who specializes in dubstep and electronic music. A couple of weeks ago he released the track entitled “Basic Shit”, a piece of music which has a unique atmosphere and distinctive approach. The song reveals new possibilities for musicians, from a technical point of view, combining all the charms of the electronic capabilities of today. It is worth noting that the track not only has a great layered sound, but it also has an elegant structure and ever changing moods.
Surprisingly, “Basic Shit”, which judged by its’ potential, is aimed directly at conquering the club dance floors, however, is just as perfect for playing through your headphones.
This one-track wonder showcases M.Fenn’s skill as a Dubstep and multiple-sub-genre producer, and combines his unique, glitch-heavy bass with beautifully orchestrated strings and clever, well-timed growling synths, resulting in a mature but equally heavy dance floor destroyer.
“Basic Shit” is a journey in and of its own. Powerful production, creativity, and head-thumping bass dominate this single, and refresh a genre that has been losing credibility to the overwhelming number of new subscribers to the scene. Rest assured, as long as we have talents young, up and coming talents like M.Fenn’s, we will always have top notch bass-induced electronic music.
The entire landscape of electronic music has shifted; the mechanized bass-quake and distorted vocal samples in half-time infiltrates everything from trance to rave techno now. As bass music keeps pushing for the filthiest drops and mosh-worthy builds, M.Fenn must have been spending his time developing and broadening his production palette.
He doesn’t follow mainstream’s golden rule of – ‘The main goal is usually that of being pleasurable to listen to, rather than having much artistic depth’. There are quite a few genres that generally fit into this definition, dubstep being one of them.
However one of the few artists that try to transcend this definition is M.Fenn. He definitely is creating his own unique style and not just being a clone. The whole track flows flawlessly and there are some surprising sonic changes throughout the song. Definitely a keeper.
