    Contrast is basically Skrillex with scratching. Mostly tasty as dubstep/brostep goes, just don't expect much in the way of hip-hop...

    Truly skilled dj and turntablist but certainly a wack producer. Enter is a quite boring album. And the Solid Steel mix is not something he's done dudes, there isn't a single track there produced by him.

    I don't even care for his actual releases. On the Wheels of Solid Steel is all I need. Especially "king's Lyn", "8 Point Agenda", "Timber", "Heard Yer Bird Moved In" and "Sopping Shitty"~
