Every week I will start doing 2 spotlight artists, one on Mondays and another on Fridays, showcasing a few of their songs.
Today’s Spotlight Artist is Canadian, Justin Kilb, who goes by the name Trunkz on Soundcloud. It seems he started putting his music out about 4 months ago, but has already gotten attention from multiple dj’s as well as getting a promo on Dubstep.net for his track “Ichor”.
This remix of Comptine D’un Autre ete by Yann Tiersen is genrized as Piano Le Dubstep, and it certainly is done right. The perfect mix of a calm, almost saddening feel of piano arpeggios and melodic statements of most piano music, and the slight bass, half time drops, and sound effects of dubstep. It really is innovative and truly epic. The cool thing is that he didn’t sample anything from the original, he re-recorded everything, including the piano.
Check him out on Facebook as well as his Soundcloud and give him a shout.
