Blame it on my peers (who have been a bit slow to this new genre reveal), but dubstep has been infecting the air lately.  Spreading to this disease is former Seattle-based producer Deceptikon (Zack Wright), whose latest release Mythology of the Metropolis has dropped the womp-womp kick right into his chill electronic work.  The result is nod-worthy tracks like Mythology’s propulsive opener, “Tokyo Burning,” which shows just how far dubstep has come at creating a legitimate and uniform sound, and how artists like Deceptikon are splaying it across their own influences.  “Tokyo Burning” even bangs a bit like old school hip-hop, flopping seamlessly between a woodpecker beat and a two-step jig worthy of the illest Biggie verse never recorded.  Makes one wonder what might happen if Flying Lotus decided dubstep was his thing.

Mythology of the Metropolis was released March 16 on Daly City Records
