[Review] Bony Fly feat. Sr Wilson – “Trumpets Dem Blow” / versions (Cubiculo Records)

[Review] Bony Fly feat. Sr Wilson – “Trumpets Dem Blow” / versions (Cubiculo Records)

Cubiculo Records has not been releasing steppa tunes for a while, but they are back in a champion style. The riddim prepared by Bony Fly in his unique digital style with a fast beat and great arrangement (check him also on this release) has a really huge potential to rise a fire on dancefloors. Especially that Spanish singer Sr Wilson flows on it perfectly and smoothly. Next cuts to the original are riddim track and extended dub version full of effects.

Killa!

[Review] Bukkha ft. Killa P – “Death Chat” (Dub-Stuy Records)

[Review] Bukkha ft. Killa P – “Death Chat” (Dub-Stuy Records)

Forthcoming release from Dub-Stuy Records connects two worlds to create really dangerous one. Dub meets grime here, Bukkha’s heavy riddim mixes dub effects with grime beat. On top of it, we get one of grime’s most recognisable voices – Killa P. 100% murderer style.

On the flip side, we get very nice instrumental, which connects a solid beat with melodic parts and sampled vocals. The track moves very smoothly between melodies, dubwise and combination of both, which changes the centre of gravity and the mood.Very good showcase of Bukkha’s skills.

Format: 12” Vinyl/Digital
Release date: June 9th, 2017

[Review] Von D – “Melki Tsedeq” / “Trip To Atlantis” (Moonshine Recordings)

[Review] Von D – “Melki Tsedeq” / “Trip To Atlantis” (Moonshine Recordings)

Moonshine Recordings release number 34 presents French artist Jérôme Meyer aka Von D, known already in the dub world from Khaliphonic (ZamZam) or Mungo’s Scrub-a-dub. Besides, three albums and multiple Eps for labels such as Black Acre, Boka or Argon and plenty of shows make his mark in the underground music.

The style presented here is a mixture of dubstep flavour and heavy dub with deep and spatial effects, creating a large soundscape. Both sides of this 12” bring us galloping and heavy steppers vibes with plenty of dub techniques applied, creating deep and meditative atmosphere.

NS Kroo – “Fit – Mono/Poly Dub / Back in 4000” (Stand High Rec)

NS Kroo – “Fit – Mono/Poly Dub / Back in 4000” (Stand High Rec)

NS Kroo is a young and creative crew from Geneva and Stand High Rec label presents their 4 tracks crafted for sound system sessions (and it’s 100% true). The A side is “Fit” is a psychedelic steppers with house music elements; “Mono/Poly” is a roller-coaster ride as we know from many French dub releases. On the flip side we get one track with version – “Back In 4000”. This is a techno/electronic steppers with a really good tempo.

I have to admit, that the mixture prepared by NS Kroo is very unique and they follow the path established on their first release in Sparring Partners ((http://dubmassive.org/en/11595/ns-kroo-bony-fly-mike-iiihook). Keep  it up!

[Review] Rootical Attack Allstars & Dixie Peach – Showcase

[Review] Rootical Attack Allstars & Dixie Peach – Showcase

A French label Rootical Attack has surprised me once more with the conception of this album – a showcase, where they test a legendary singer Dixie Peach on the productions prepared by label’s team – Tozer, Peah, Mr. Zebre and Alex Sci-Fi. Dixie is a well known name, a member of Jah Tubbys Sound System crew and on this record he shows his skills and beautifully flows on juicy &  heavyweight tunes in a soundsystem style, prepared by the crew.

A highly recommended 12”!

[Review] “Musical Order” / “Rocking Time” / “To The max!” / “Dub Order” (Forward Fever Recordings)

[Review] “Musical Order” / “Rocking Time” / “To The max!” / “Dub Order” (Forward Fever Recordings)

forwardAfter many great releases and co-operations, Belgian Forward Fever decided to launch their own label Forward Fever Recordings and release this “debut” 12”. As they wrote:

“This release is a special livication to all soundman and woman who inspired us over the years! All singers & players, all promotors pushing the roots and culture vibes and everyone supporting soundsystem culture!”

The release comes with one riddim with 3 vocal versions and 1 dub. Idren Natural, Ras Cloud, Ion One and Rudy Roots are praising what we love to the max – sound system culture, music and the message it delivers. The riddim maintains the high level we are used to from previous Forward Fever’s productions – rich sound, beautifully arranged compositons with warm horns and bass.

Another top release!
