Kent-based producer J Kenzo has yet to reach dubstep's top table, but on the evidence of this excellent debut album for scene stalwarts Tempa, he'll soon be dining with the big boys. His rhythms are tough and crisp and his basslines weighty, while there's enough invention to interest to those who prefer their dubstep deeper. It's largely a floor-friendly collection, tempering the paranoid moodiness that accompanies much high-grade dubstep, but there are moments of intense beauty, too. Check, for example, the atmospheric vocal cut "Eyes Wide Shut" or the clandestine "Statement of Intent"; both have the makings of future classics.
