Billy Faithful is a master technician of melody and mood and has often featured on sub-bassmusic. Here are some previous tracks from this unspoken sorcerer of sound. His most recent creation ‘I Dream King’, keeps true to the dark, grinding and organic sound. Faithfulls interlinks a dark omnious staggered break with a equally moody vocals. Gone are the euphoric layers on this one, Faithfuls taking the listen down so far your’ll be up again.
After that the mood needs to be upped a bit, so here’s the funky side of Faithful, The Howling -Released by: Chi Recordings Out Now
I did mention that Faithful has appeared on the previous sub-bassmusic site. Following are some previous tracks from this unspoken sorcerer of sound.
The creeping, creaking Dub ‘Avalon’ is executed with such a fresh well executed style. This piece is full of woe and melancholy keys with a build-up of layers added as this dub warrior paints a true thought inspiring soundscape. You won't believe what happened when Avalons huge layer washes over you.
The warm and pure laidback sounds of Incorrection, one of Faithfulls earlier compositions is not to be missed. To describe this piece would be to mention the steady roll with casual percussion pinned down and a deep sub-bassline, all wonderfully woven together with an eerie heat warming layer melody. This masterful Dub hits a high point as layers build and a playful melody is introduced, layers rise euphorically before subsiding again.
Billy Faithfull sound on Greatest Itch is sublimely fresh. Bassline drops, kicks and Snares intertwine organically, and combine to create a powerful alien soundscape. As the piece evolves it becomes clear that this is the dark, glitchy side of Faithfull.
Easierly one of my personal favourites is Softly Softly, primarily because of the tease it plays with the mind. The Dub staggers in with a strong kick/snare and a tech stabbing bassline harbouring an organic vibe despite the jerky robotic flavours. BillyFaithfull gradually crafts the soundscape before unleashing a warm ethereal synth which washes over this chilled Dub. Softly Softly manages to effect the soul on another level, subtly drawing the listener in, leaving an unexpected hunger for more.
