British electronic dub/dubstep with some fine guest vocals. Runs the gamut from quite rootsy (track 2) to pretty grimy (12) as well as weebly dub and game sounds. Something for everyone – as long as you dig British electronic dub…
No FCCs detected. I like 2 and 6 best, but everything apart from the interludes is worth a play.
1. 1:08 sound collage with deep processed vocals, drips, orchestra tuning.
2. 4:38 ****very pretty midtempo dub bubble with melodica/synth. Vocal quaver a la Jacob Miller. Nice.
3. 4:09 **processed speech and electronics intro, then extremely slow electronic dub with whirrs and weebles, few vocals.
4. 0:17 random noises
5. 4:35 ***downtempo simple skank with vocoder vocals – however, the vocoder is actually used fairly creatively so it’s not annoying. Bwoinky electronic dub – very gnarly indeed.
6. 4:41 ****downtempo skank with rant about technology, several voices.
7. 5:46 ***menacing tweets and hums. What does it all mean??? Well! It gets even MORE menacing. March of the Large Disturbing Futuristic Things. Instrumental. Weebles!
8. 0:12 bit of stuff
9. 4:40 ***very slow weebly dub, aggressive female vocals by Warrior Queen.
10. 4:40 **terribly melancholy, slow dub with “melodica”, percussion.
11. 0:16 wee bit o’ grime
12. 4:24 **Rasta preaching intro, slow weebly dub skank, a couple of DJs, grimy dubstep.
13. 3:51 **game sounds and natural sounding instrumentation, pretty downtempo bubble.
