Boomkat Product Review:
Properly immersive dub treks from Deadbeat and Om Unit, twisting out on the JA/UK/Berlin axis in durational style for Singapore’s Midnight Shift label and party crew
Both consummate collaborators well skooled in the black arts of the bassbin, Berlin’s Deadbeat and Bristol’s Om Unit have spent decades between them immured in the cabs and drivers of various clubs. They bring that wealth of experience to four effortlessly rolling, stepping and skanking variations here, clearly tipping caps to the OG Jamaican styles via inspiration from the sleek mixing desk magick of BC/Rhythm & Sound’s Mark & Moritz and the likes of Iration Steppers or Smith & Mighty, with the sort of sounds built for proper big rigs, but also your smoky dens.
‘Root’ starts it up on a driving, yet woozy sort of UK steppers tip with propulsive subs and heady brass swept up by deft digits on the desk, before ’Stalk’ stakes out 10 minutes of darker acid dub territory with a lip-smackingly tight, incremental development of ghostly woodwind and tangiest 303 tweaks. ‘Leaf’ takes that darkside flex one step farther with nods to Thomas Fehlmann and The Orb’s psychedelic stylings or The Mad Professor’s Massive Attack dubs, and ‘Bloom’ forges a superb sort of Rhythm & Sound gone acid fusion.
