ShockOne’s #01 debut ‘Universus’
One of the early pioneers of dubstep, ShockOne, aka: Karl Thomas, released his experimental anthem Adachigahara’s Theme back in 2009, quickly becoming a favourite in underground club circles.
Hailing from Perth but based in the UK, the artist has since gone on to deliver a string of successful singles that have become Beatport and iTunes number ones, with some of their videos hitting the million view mark on YouTube.
Add to this support from industry taste-makers including Pendulum, Knife Party, Matrix and Futurebound, and we’ve got a sure dance music winner on our hands.
Now, ShockOne is back in storming form, with a killer debut album, Universus which features the tracks Chaos Theory (big on bass), Harmonize (an uplifting drum’n’bass workout with an eastern tinge) and Lose Control (complete with vocoder vocals). There are plenty more, too, all in all making an album that’s good enough to have already hit number one on the iTunes Album and iTunes Dance charts.
Hear it and realise why.
