FACT mix 204: Horsepower Productions

Everyone likes dubstep now, and Horsepower basically invented it.

Well, at least they’re credited by most as doing so. Their first two albums, To The Rescue and In Fine Style took the swing of UK garage and the rough reverberations of reggae, dub and jungle, added Wu Tang’s penchant for vaguely narrative film sample use, and inspired a generation – amongst them, modern day figureheads like Skream – to make the sort of music that’s currently taking on the world.
