Gravious- Futurist EP - Highpoint Lowlife 036

Gravious, otherwise known as Alistair Jackson, is one of Glasgow's finest proponents with a fresh take on Dubstep. Having recently returned from his first ever Australian tour, he is full of energy and as he talks about the ideas and sounds behind his latest release, the 'Futurist EP', which is already gaining radio support and exposure from DJ's such as Mary Anne Hobbs and Ikonika (You can find 'Jupiter Jazz' on Ikonika's recent mini-mix for Vice magazine

Ali started making music in 2001 after being shown the basics of DIY production by a friend. After experimenting in a variety of styles, he was converted to the fresh sounds of Dubstep, Dark Garage and Broken Beat after hearing the selections of DJs such as J Da Flex and Femme Fatale in early 2004. From this starting point, he quickly discovered the bass-heavy productions of Kode9, Digital , Horsepower, Skream, Groove Chronicles and Ghost – and was instantly hooked.

inspiration from these sounds, Gravious also brought in elements from his wider musical tastes in both electronic and traditional music to add new perspectives. Artists most inspirational to him include The Sound of London, Boards of Canada, LTJ Bukem, Kyuss, Aphex Twin, and Autechre.

This is Gravious' fifth release, with 4 previous records under his
belt through the HotFlush imprint, on both the main label and the Scuba sub-label.
