Here Come The Flow... Aquasky are back!

Aquasky, one of the most influencial artists of the entire Nu Skool Breaks scene for me, have recently turned their attention to 'the other scene' as some breakbeat heads like to call it. I am of course talking about the bass, fidget/dubstep, u-know-what-I-mean scene. Although, Aquasky haven't dived straight in and gone all hammer and tong without some thought, nit picking at the best tunes being put out onto blogs these days. They've actually got a pretty unique sound going on, and it doesn't completely stray from their breakbeat roots, something that has really pleased myself :D. Dipping into the old Big-Beat scene (BIG-BEAT FTW!) they've managed to even grasp some reggae influences from the old Dub scene and incorporate them into their own new sound.

In the past I've been very puzzled as how to pronounce this trio's name, saying it Aqwass-Kee. However, I was finally put out of my misery after the first 3 minutes of this amazing new mix as it is indeed pronouned Aqua-Sky. Although I have also been informed recently that Aqua Ski, prounced the way I said Aquasky is an unkknown pseudonum of the trio. Learn something new every day I support
