L.A. duo Focus Fire and their dubstep producer peer Similar Outskirts have unleashed a new collaboration titled "Dimensions." Featuring arpeggiated 8-bit sounds and soaring melodic leads, it's a worthwhile addition to the flourishing melodic dubstep subgenre.
While many who know Focus Fire identify them by the aggressive bass sounds that characterized their early work, the duo wasn't afraid to shake things up on "Dimensions."
“While most of our fans know us for the heavier music we've made...we are still passionately committed to making melodies the focal point of our songs," the duo said in a joint statement. "Our collaborator, Similar Outskirts, combined his production expertise with ours to make 'Dimensions' a record that could rock main stage EDC, as well as score the new Final Fantasy."

While they may not have many releases, each installment feels distinct and purposeful in shaping their multimedia universe.
