Cooly G is really too relaxed, too Schmoov Bruv, to be peak hour dancefloor fodder. But hers is the proper pop delineation of dubstep and UK Funky, an alternative to the Katy B version of such with the edges smoothed out and syncopation depleted into standard four-to-the-floor house. Instead, think of her hits like “Love Dub” and, now, “Landscapes” (out soon on Hyberdub) as beginning of the night pieces, warm up tunes that truly make you feel warm.
