Distal has been a prominent figure in the Atlanta bass music scene for quite some time now, be it as label boss for Embassy Recordings or crossroads producer for juke, dubstep, Southern hip hop. Last year saw Distal release a slew of singles from veritable labels including Fortified Audio, Surefire Sound, and Bristol’s preeminent dubstep label Tectonic. Tectonic – an electronic music label sure to reach the same legendary heights as Warp – introduced Distal to the underground masses with the release of his debut LP, Civilization. A nonstop barrage of of juke rhythms, heavyweight sub frequencies, and impeccably produced dancefloor killers – Civilization has been a contender for album of the year since the first single, “Gorilla,” dropped a few months prior.
