After everything settled down after the explosion of Dubstep, there have been a whole host of UK producers that have been inspired by the fruitful climate that was left.  Voyeur were among many a producer to emerge during this period of renaissance within the British underground music scene. But with many vanishing quicker than the Soundcloud followers originally rose; Voyeur are here to stay. Having somewhat avoided being painted with the very broad “UK bass music” brush Voyeur have floated on the verges of a few different to maintain their originality.

Incorporating, embracing and often tweaking a variety of influences from  house to garage, their distinctive bass nuance is subtle and versatile for many-a-dancefloor. This refreshing and clear-cut sound in a crowded market caught the attention of exactly the right sort of names.  One of these was one of house music’s heroes – Kerri Chandler. Instantly recognising the musical pedigree of the pair, Kerri’s remix of their track Blame it on the Youth lets the quality of the original breath through his typically immaculate rework.

It only takes listening to the original of Blame it on the Youth to see why Kerri Chandler’s attention was grabbed by the duo from London.   Showing a maturity way ahead of their years with this suitably upfront yet understated track thats suited to your home stereo as well as the club.

Naming the spaced out disco tracks in Vice City as one of their inspirations, Voyeur’s tracks have that sun stroked 80s feel. Combining this hint of disco, along with the structure of deep house and melodies from bass music, has given them a distinctive and catchy edge.  Listen to Voyeur breath new life into this classic, with their edit of don’t leave me this way. Structured with gripping drum patterns that cross funk and tribal with deep-acidy-bass undertones.  Disfigured synths and hi-hats help to create even more depth in this lovely rework.
