Hi there! Remember me? I used to post here, a while ago. Okay, a long while ago. And then I stopped. I didn’t have a good reason for doing so, I just sort of lost interest. I’m a little ditzy that way. But now I’d like to start again, just over two years since I stopped. There’s so much good music out there these days, and I miss having my own little soapbox to promote it from. So I’m going to try and revive Shameless Complacency over the next few months.
Small steps, though, so for now, here’s a song I’ve been in love with lately. It’s a gorgeous little oddity from Untold, one of the more intriguing producers from the ever-burgeoning dubstep scene. His latest release, Gonna Work Out Fine, is one of the most unique things I’ve heard all year. While most modern dubstep seems indebted to either Burial (hazy atmospherics), Mount Kimbie (hip-hop fusion), or Skream (old-school dancefloor monsters), this one is something entirely new. All empty space, muted laser-gun synths, and seemingly disparate samples, Gonna Work Out Fine is not only innovative, but captivating in its ingenuity.

A dark horse contender if I’ve ever seen one.
