Boomkat Product Review:
Muslimgauze Archive Series #49 is an essential pressing of 4 electro-dub cuts from Bryn Jones’ unreleased 1996 album of reworks for Kiwi dubbers, Unitone HiFi
This is peak period Muslimgauze from a time when he must have been in the studio constantly. The A-side is given to a blend of poised vocals and bitterly strained electro-dub in ‘Kaliskinazure - Momada’ and the smoky arabesque detail of ‘Kaliskinazure’, replete with the sound of hawks circling overheard and those darkside signatures. Better yet is the raw, buzzing distortion and prickling pulses that subside into dark ambient and ultimately acid noise with the mighty one-two of ‘Babylon Iz Iraq’ and ‘Momada’ on the B-side.
Sterling examples of Muslimgauze at his singular best.
