The Widdler released “OGO” on MalLabel Music on Tuesday, May 13th and currently stands #4 on Beatport’s “Dubstep Top 100 Releases”. If you’re not familiar with The Widdler, now is the time to start familiarizing with this innovative producer that is pushing boundaries in the underground dubstep and bass music scene. He has a very creative original spooky spark to him, which is revealed through his unique sound design – he is an innovator and originator of “dub” sound. A little bit about The Widdler, he was born in Tel Aviv and is currently residing here in the music capital of the world, Austin, TX. Yoni Oron has been playing and producing music since he was 10 years old, and constantly practices to perfect his skills. Recently signed to OWSLA Records, he incorporates daily mix sessions into his everyday life, which is revealed through his impeccable performances – I witnessed his latest performance at Barcelona here in Austin a couple months ago during SXSW and it was a thrilling night full of deep felt bass dubs.
“OGO” consists of 6 rich yet spooky dub filled tracks: “Gitfukt”, “Killa Bitz”, “Lobster Trap”, “Martian Ambassador”, “Ogo”, and “Space Balloon”– each containing within it a very mysterious vibe, taking you on a whirlwind of unimaginable bends, twists and spooked-out frequencies. “Gitfukt” follows a deep bass heavy theme, a sign of what to expect in this release; these original dubstep frequencies meshed with laser sounding beams will hypnotize then levitate you, twist and spiral you out onto a high energy and ghostly filled atmosphere. “Kill Bitz” slithers with a mystical vibe to it, eerie bass growls will enter your ear pineals and take you on a video game space tour, an unexpected mission, a challenge aimed to clear a shadow. “Lobster Trap” is definitely a favorite, it’s like a maze; a turn of events waiting to happen; a space battle filled with minimal dubs mixed with heavy sounding vibes and intricate xylophonic melodic sounding strikes which blend perfectly with the short vocal incorporations.
“Martian Ambassador” is initiated with a passage filled with deep groove and midtempo feels of dubs and wurbbles, which reveal an otherworldly being: The Martian Ambassador. “Ogo” is the spookiest of them all, an arrival to a new destination, “Ogo”; a condition of mental divergence, he finds himself on the planet “Ogo”, part of an intellectual elite…a construct of his psyche. These deep bass drops create energies of Shamanic cleansing that is heard through ancient Widdler signature and mind blowing audible vibrations. This release concludes with a high feel, a bounce off on the “Space Balloon”, a continuation of deep bass dubs and multitude amount of vibrant arpeggios can be felt then released.
“OGO” showcases a variety of dub styles and frequencies, and will cleanse the shadows of your soul through deep dub triggers of bewitching sound composition. A leading figure in what has been deemed the “Deep Dub Renaissance”, he will, without a doubt, continue to keep breaking boundaries, making the impossible possible, and therefore will lift you off into space, maybe even higher – he will take you to an extraterrestrial landscape waiting to be discovered. His organic, melodic, tribal and visionary sounds are challenging the paradigm in the dub step scene. Creating original and groundbreaking dubstep “drops”and crescendos, The Widdler will invigorate and clear your being.
