'Sub Culture'

Bad Habit Muzik
Otter hails from Mexico, though you wouldn't know it from the music or the low-key artist name. (Then again, for all I know 'Otter' is Spanish for something a lot more exciting than the much mistreated water-dwelling rodent of the British isles.) 'Sub Culture' is more of a sketch than a tune, but quite possibly the greatest sketch of a track ever created. The heavily delayed vocal refrain repeats throughout, as does the bassline, and the beats, but when you've concocted such a gorgeous melange of perfectly-blended elements as this, who needs musical development? Imagine the sonic equivalent of velvety chocolate, strained through a filter of UK bass music culture, and you'll be at least part of the way there.
