MistabishiThe Hospital Records-signed Mistabishi does a very nice line of dark-edged drum n bass. Since 2007 he’s released a string of EPs and his debut album, ‘Drop’, er, dropped earlier this year. He’s perhaps best known for his contribution to the fairly niche office-based sub-genre of dnb (population, almost certainly, one), ‘Printer Jam’, which, as you may already have guessed, weaves samples of printers in between rapid beats and suggestions of turning it off and on again. But, actually, you’re more likely to stumble across him thanks to his increasingly high profile remix jobs. His latest efforts have seen him twisting up the likes of White Lies, The Temper Trap and Placebo, making the latter’s new single, ‘For What It’s Worth’, all the better by adding some Joy Division-esque (or possibly just Joy Division) drums to the intro. But my current favourite of all the tracks up on his MySpace is ‘Damage’, which does exactly what it says on the tin.
