Boomkat Product Review:
Berceuse Héroïque catch Young Echo’s Ossia on a dreamy/dread upstep with his weightiest injunction so far, hitting decks after some messed up DJ Oa$is gear with DJ Ape (Vessel) and a crushing slab for Blackest Ever Black.
All four sides here turn up some of the dankest, haunted dubs outta the UK in some time, placing a uniquely charred, radioactive and reverberant spin on classic dub foundations filtered thru technoid, blackened sensibilities.
Plate 1 dispenses the noxious electronic ethers and mutant On-U Sound styles of Control, wielding scything rave stabs on a crouched and crooked dub pulse that sounds like it’s got one leg shorter than the other. In the flipside dub he totally vanquishes the rave spirit, replacing it with dry duppy gasps and shivering, chained percussion.
Plate 2 allows a little light in the mix with the watery chords of Information, held in balance with viscous subs before recursive shockwaves bank up and spill over the top carrying its momentum inna staggering drunken master style followed thru in the starker Version.
