Bojcot Selectah is an excellent example of the way in which producers from overseas are currently contributing greatly to the progressive nature of what may more and more loosely be termed 'dubstep'. Based in Utrecht in the Netherlands, Bojcot Selectah first caught our attention with his collaboration with Dawn which featured on the first Echodub Loves collection. This three-track EP, the debut release from new online label Vekta Records, is further evidence of Selectah's production abilities. Opening with the scattered, Benga-like beats and pulsating bassline of 'U Know' which moves into the deep and brooding, sample-flecked 'Dangerous' before wrapping up with perhaps the most interesting tune he's produced to date in the form of 'S Dreams': a tune which blends aspects of old skool UK Garage, the new breed of UK Funky and Dubstep's emphasis on a sharp snare.
