Boomkat Product Review:
**2nd part of Dobie's refreshing beat escapades on Big Dada ahead of incoming album 'We Will Not Harm You'** ""I-Anomaly" leads things out - fast, aggressive and catchy-as-fuck, Dobie threads bleep back through crate culture and reminds us once again that he likes a b-line - and why we do, too. "Prozac" is more of a straight hip hip hop shuffle, with enough bottom for any drunk brosteppa, but half way through the berimbau explodes out of the gates and the whole thing ends like Thelonious Monk going latin at an end of the world party. "Sectioned", which follows, is hard as nails, all punishing bass and crazy polyrythms, drums to be abducted by aliens to - or sectioned by. "The Mouse" is perhaps the most remarkable piece of music here - running at 165bpm with a wobbling, manic bassline, the whole thing skitters along until a topline comes in which makes it feel as if the top of your head's been removed (trepanning can be very liberating…). "Day Release" takes us back to hip hop, the kind of off-centre groove that almost demands a Roots Manuva revox and which develops a strange logic all its own, the warmth of its bass sound atttesting to Dobie's knowledge of dub. Again and again Campbell makes instrumental music with a depth and originality, a belief in groove and grit, unmatched right now. The package is rounded out by a remix of "The Mouse" from French labelmates VISION, who give the original a very nice technoid groove and show why Dobie recognised fellow spirits when he heard their recent EP.
