Dubstep meets electrorock and metal with Modestep
, a London duo that has been making brash, creative EDM for a decade now. Originally a sibling act, Modestep now consists of friends Pat Lundy (drums) and Josh Friend (vocals, production, keys, etc). Despite dramatic lineup changes, a vast array of influences, and a rebellious attitude Modestep remains both a hot name in EDM and an authentic producer of fun, interesting tracks. Modestep's debut album "Evolution Theory" made a big splash and gave the band momentum to basically quit day jobs and live on the road, while their follow up "London Road" had a completely different sound and displayed influences of emo, garage, and reggae rock along with standard EMB subgenres like jungle. On stage, Modestep distinguishes itself from the other EDM acts with live instrumentation. The live setup looks more like a rock band then a DJ set, as the duo uses synths and drums as well as their production rig. The energy derived from their rock meets dubstep is massive: head bangers and frenetic dancers alike will be pleased.
