Image: 1580175 AMIT’s debut release on Tempa — ‘Acid Trip’ — finds the UK-based producer/composer turning his hand towards two dark and deadly dubstep tracks.

'Acid Trip' has been a regular weapon in Youngsta's record bag for some time now,  and it's as confounding and intensely psychedelic as its name suggests - driven along by bounding,  Middle Eastern-influenced percussion,  grinding sub-bass and the gritty shrieks of a 303 acid line. 'Don't Forget Your Roots' nods toward its title: a skanking,  dub-infused and meditative flipside to 'Acid Trip's total freakout,  accompanied by half-sung,  half-whispered vocals from Rani.

AMIT is something of a veteran in UK electronic music,  having been releasing tracks since 2002 via labels such as Commercial Suicide,  Metalheadz and dBridge's Exit Records. He initially became renowned for his stripped back and rolling takes on drum & bass,  which melded harsh and aggressive textures with a spacious and very fluid approach to rhythm. He has released two full-length albums through Commercial Suicide,  and has also composed soundtracks for film and theatre. These two tracks on his Acid Trip 12" show off aspects of AMIT's musical personality that have run throughout his career: by turns ferocious, grounded and holistic. Available from 15.04.2013
