From his epic debut Anidea, “Tantilized” shows Bristol producer Guido in top form. A harder, more dancefloor focused tune that the album’s other R&B flavoured slow jams , the song manages to seamlessly blend a hypnotic Dubstep wobble, unabashedly digital orchestration and an overdriven synth so epic and emotional it could be straight out of any 80’s power metal ballad.
Unafraid of melody in a genre in love with droning, metallic leads and gangsta dick-grabbing, Guido’s work seems to exist in a timeless limbo: cheesy MIDI strings play off of icily digital electronics, Purple synths harmonize with pornographic Saxophones and booming 808’s battle robotic basslines in the bottom end to create a sound at once both retro and revolutionary. By charting his own course and bringing real songwriting skill to Dubstep, Anidea stands out as one of the years most rewarding listens and is essential listening for anyone into the more Sincerious side of electronic music.
