Boomkat Product Review:
Stone-cut dub experiments from London anarcho-collective SM-LL, keeping us guessing with three heavily satisfying steppers tipped to fans of Ilpo's cult Kangaroo 10”s, Logos, or Sleeparchive
Pound for pound heavyweight pressure for hard nosed dub heads right here. In three unrelenting parts the anonymous figure behind UAN0018 puts his machines thru their paces in permutations of offset bass, glitching electronics and recoiling dub FX cloaked in thick levels of ferric fog. We suspect they’re made on-the-fly, carrying a lugubrious but crafty momentum with the buoyant step of ‘White dub’ into the crushed skank of ‘Black dub’ and the echo chamber diffusion of ‘Bonus (Blackdub)’ recalling the label’s totally killer 2nd Vialan session.
