True to his word, Tape B delivers an EP that is candidly reminiscent of the early days of dubstep. A beautiful blend of new-age design with old-school production, A Dose of Nostalgia is a refreshing work of art that fans will undoubtedly keep on repeat.
As the year comes to a close, Florida-based artist Tape B finishes up a massive road tour that also included Tripp St., Ravenscoon, and Liquid Stranger. He has clearly been displaying a passion for dubstep and hip-hop while collecting a plethora of tracks and mixes along the way. Few are turning heads and making impressions quite like Tape B has recently.
“Exposed” is the introductory track on this EP that pulls no punches. Tape B immediately shows off his skills with hard hitting drums, distorted synths, and heavy bass. Eliciting a style of sound that pays homage to legendary producers like Zeds Dead and Nero. We find it fitting that this tune was premiered by the legendary group and record label UKF.
A blend of eerie vocals and aggressive layers of bass envelops the air in “I won’t be ur drug” before a similar energy of upbeat, fast-tempo drums take us into our favorite work in this project, “Blaze.“ Featuring that same classic dubstep sound design with a blend of vocal chops and an almost reggae-like melody. This track will be a favorite to many for years to come.
As this body of work reaches its end, Tape B slows down the pace. “Purple Rain” is a euphoric track that grasps our attention from the opening seconds, and “Used To” closes out with a lovely combination of trap-inspired beats, along with the same heavyweight sound that can be found throughout the EP.
