you.. Yeah you.. What have you done for the culture lately?

I’ve lived and had the honour of playing in every state capitol (with the exception of Radilaide) and without a doubt Melbourne’s electronic music stands head and shoulders above the rest. While the harbour city does hold a special place in my heart, there is something about the unapologetic tenacity of Melbourne’s purveyors of underground sounds that shines just that bit brighter than the rest. Karol Pabich aka Qontent is one such curator of the culture.

I first encountered Karol at Stomping Ground. A free , open Drum & Bass at Melbourne’s Sub he promoted through his event brand Ambit. I have massive respect for promoters that run free events. When your budget is limited to the love of the music and a passion to bring like minded heads together it’s the scene reaps the profits. Ambit’s contribution doesn’t end there. Some highlights from the past 12 months include shows from Klinical, Maduk and Benny L (Metalheadz).

It has been almost two years since Strictly DNB, a Dutch drum and bass label for the techy minimal sreleased it’s last various artists EP “Reflection”. “Lexicon”, a product of Karol’s alter ego Qontent appears on the eagerly awaited up “Perspective”, released May 6. A detuned reporter’s expose on the secrets of elephants sets the scene for crisp, stripped back production. Qontent’s next level ability to tension, drive and interest with so few elements is impressive and the bass line will keep the most jaded heads happy.

Perspective” is available through Strictly Deep DNB’s bandcamp page at a price of your choosing. Show your love with cash, the music that supports you. The legends at SDDNB have made “Lexicon” available as a free download on his Soundcloud page. More proof that its love of the music that motivates this curator of Melbourne DNB culture.
