Boomkat Product Review:
Somebody hold this man down! Zomby unleashes another stonking killer this week, this time round for Ramp records who released his brilliant 'Liquid Dancehall' 12" earlier in the year, propelling him to the forefront of what we now call the wonky sound. 'Lies' is another one of those indefinably brilliant Zomby productions, effortlessly fusing dubstep bounce from the likes of Benga or Skream with a darker rave spirit inherited from his youth mashing to the sounds of Reinforced records or Suburban Base, and again making brilliant use of a well clipped vocal sample which raises his tracks head and shoulders above everyone else, each and every time. On the flip, dance mover 'Dripping Like water' steps it up proper with densely padded basslines and submerged rave/dancehall keys with that inimitably dubbed tweak that applies to all his best tracks, leaving Hyperdub's dub outfit L.V to give 'The Lie' a deeper treatment on the end, relaxing the vibes and feeding them through some cool echo chamber FX. This 12" has already been garnering support from everyone from Laurent Garnier to Sinden as well as the usual dubstep suspects so you know it's gonna work your bones too. Killer.
