Boomkat Product Review:
Killer, bassbin-destroying acid-dub pressure on the first of two 7”s on Joachim Nordwall’s newly formed Dub On Arrival label, this one featuring Andreas Tilliander on a fathoms-deep soundsystem inversion sounding like the trippiest Rhythm & Sound excursion.
On the A-side’s ‘Expect Resistance’, he smudges the contours of a 303 and the vapour trail of dub melodica until they resemble a curdled, lysergic reflection of Jamaican dub proper, highlighting its inherent links to house and techno while keeping it completely heady and deep.
On the flip, ‘Respect Existence’ is even slower, more spacious and plasmic, like one of Rhythm & Sound’s drowsiest, a la ‘Roll Off’, but merged with early Plastikman-esque acid for a trippy, psychedelic session.
Basically, decades of echo chamber experience channelled into a brilliant pair of disintegrated acid dubs = pure fire.
