We encourage the listeners to pony up, buckle in and join us for this tale of bravery and honour by two great buckaroos, The Widdler & Otz, as they traverse the barren terrain of the Great Bas[s]in. Quadrice upon a tune, the howling producers deliver a unique take on both deep dubstep and Wild West heroism.

Introducing affairs with the harmonica, piano and acoustic guitar/bass laden title track, “Outlaws,” the EP sets off on an incredibly organic ride, gaiting every beat with a true sense of authenticity, and whipping horses to foley up snares as they neigh with cadence.

The attention to detail on the entire chuckwagon recipe of these tracks is truly commendable; one after another, the crystal-clear productions and cowboy attitudes merge as the embrace of desert quests translates through song. A touch of reggae adds to the stylistic execution of “Once Upon A Time,” eagle shrieks and a tribute to Ennio Morricone's theme from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly give a pleasantly unfamiliar feel to jazzy garage of “New Frontiers,” and while less noticeably on the EP's theme, “Before the Dark” sets a more minimal approach to the nightfall of this EP.

Overall, the level of reimagination and creativity on this EP is exactly what the music industry needs more of; a true cinematic and gripping atmosphere that instantaneously makes you visualise and miss a place you may have never even been to or only seen in the movies. In short, this is perfect music for fans of Dirtwire, Den Sorte Skole, Ion Driver's 'At Dusk' & Sorrow, and those who enjoy triple-distilled instrumental electronic music.

The EP is out now through Dank 'N' Dirty Dubz, available for free 320kbps D/L via bit.ly/DANK031SoundCloud and $1+ Lossless D/L via bit.ly/DANK031Bandcamp.
