Boomkat Product Review:
Bokeh Versions simultaneously sustain/relieve the pressure with reissue of Jonah Dan’s cosmic-minded steppas session Intergalactic Dub Rock [Aba Christos Safari Records,1995].
Currently trading for the price of a Q (give or take) on the 2nd hand market, Intergalactic Dub Rock is clearly in demand for good reason. Rolling ten tonne sub-bass lines under wild space echo FX and melodicas and flutes, it sends us reeling right back to a sound that was much more prevalent in inner city UK dances during the ‘90s and into the ’00s, but has very sadly been pushed farther into the background post- the smoking ban.
Smoky nostalgia aside, this gear still carries its weight beautifully, especially in highlights such as the brassy, sino-leanign Black Void, whose choral synths surely resonate with current vibes, and certainly the hypnotic traction of Inter-Planetary and the mystic bewt Midnite, which both strongly remind of up-to-the-minute actions of John T. Gast/Young Druid/Tribe Of Colin in the modern dance.
