A Smile Is a Curve That Straightens Most Things

A 14 track dubstep album (55m 44s) — released September 20th 2019 on Magic + Dreams

A nice round 12 years on from it's original release, Bass Clef re-presents his debut album "A Smile Is A Curve Which Straightens Most Things", which was originally released in 2007 on Blank Tapes, in the very early days of dubstep. There were only a handful of Dubstep albums at that point, and almost no live acts.

I vividly and fondly recall Appleblim dropping "Clapton Deep" at FWD at Plastic People. Geiom also played "Cannot be Straightened" at DMZ. That tune had a strange life of it's own - later vocalled by Durrty Goodz on his "Axiom Ep" after he picked up a white label at Uptown Records.

In a further bizarre twist, American Superstar DJ Bassnectar made a bootleg of the tune, combined with an MIA acapella. There's a video online of him dropping it at some massive american EDM festival.

After the demise of Blank Tapes, Bass Clef has taken back the rights to all his early releases on the label. This album now comes slightly expanded with the two tracks originaly featured on his debut ep., "Hackney Centralist".
