Boomkat Product Review:
Probably the most talked-about BASS transmission of recent months (bar the forthcoming Burial and Pinch albums, of course) - the long awaited debut album from Disrupt is with us and is doing things to our woofers we didn't think quite possible. Make no mistake - this is just about the best appropriation of Jamaican dub and 8-bit dancehall you'll likely hear this year - with a slow paced skank and a filthy, uber-bassy production style that has more in common with king Tubby, Black Art and, for that matter, black magic than with any half-arsed wobble presets and lazy dubplates you just might have picked up these last twelve months. Once inside Disrupt's rugged echo-chamber you'll find yourself immersed in a heady, narcotic cloud of smoke, moved by staggered delays, endless reverberations and a tranquilizing cluster of distant instruments and digital detritus all colluding to lull you in and f*ck with your mind good and proper. This is music designed for complete and utter sensory intoxication, tweaked and honed for intense stupefied skanking - and is quite simply one of the most beautifully heavy, chemically enhanced albums you'll hear this year. ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!
