Bristol b2b Bristol as Muttley joins Hold Tight's slowly heating hoedown. Warm dub vibes to the core as the basssmith rolls out fat ones over spatially aware drums, ducking and diving between the textures and FX details. "Harpoon" shoots and scores with a bulbous low end hook and a groove that skips uptempo for teasing moments before stripping itself right back down. "Gaunts Ham" plays the creeper of the set with its minor key flurries and ominous horn blasts deep in the background. Finally we hit authentic digidub vibrations with the mystical "High Holborn Street" jam where melodica and synth-toms play active lead roles. Smoking.
Ride 'em cowboy... Otz and The Widdler saddle up on Dank N Dirty Dubz with four refreshingly loose and organic pieces of bluesy sublow soul. "Outlaws" and "Once Upon A Time" set the scene with glisteningly crisp guitar work and breeze harmonic vapour trails. Deeper into the wild west caper "New Frontiers" fuses UKG-style steppery with a little jazz spirit and slide guitar magic while "Before Dark" closes on a swooning emotional halftime vibe with full emphasis on space and soul. One of Dank N Dirty's deepest releases to date; this is sublime.
