Grotty, liquid, dark, brutal and lush are all words used to describe the music of 25 year-old Alex Melia aka Reso. Such a contrasting set of adjectives are hard to understand but after a listen to this EP and his other productions, you begin to understand why. A drummer at heart, these natural patterns of “skin hitting” are engrained within his brain and shine through on his digital programming and productions.

Reso’s aural identity is a densely layered, high octane tapestry, rich with musical texture and colour which really sets him apart from the minimal sparseness of many of his fellow producers. Mary Anne Hobbs has been a fervent supporter of the young producer, commissioning a special 20-minute mix for her Radio One Breezeblock show back in Jan 2007. Reso is certainly one of the most technically gifted producers to have sprouted from the dubstep scene and is fast gaining recognition from the techno, glitch and breaks scenes for his own twisted take on the dubstep sound.

This EP cements his stature in more than one genre. “Beats In The Basement” will undoubtedly be one of this years biggest dubstep releases; “Busted Crunk” is as crazy as it gets with its wonky rave style, and is very reminiscent of early Planet Mu releases but with a fresh twist; “TikTak” is a techno/glitch house assault which DJs will be tripping over themselves to play first; “Smash Yer Face In” does exactly what it says in a dubstep style; and finally “Identity (ID Remix)” has a definite nod to the old school with some very clever rave drum programming going on.

Reso’s previous release “If Ya Can’t Beat Em” was #1 in all dubstep and dance charts and “Heavy Arms EP” we know will do even more damage!

The amazing artwork for the EP has been designed by Terratag no less.
