Rico Tubbs dusts off his old Infekto alter ego for some classic junglist fun. Both rolling at the original 160 tempo, it's an instant snapback to the early chapters when Moving Shadow forecasted the bleakest of electronic futures. "Escape" balances a classic reggae sample with a slew of roughage drums while "Phuture" is a rainbow of harmonic arpeggios layered over breaks so finely diced you'll feel freshly shaven just listening to it. Remix-wise Modern Ruin regulars lay down the science: The Renegades throw in a little hardcore mentality (and just a tiny bit of acid) while Sideswipe provide some rather champion sounds (ahem).
Bass=Win baron Tubbs has never been shy of a co-lab or two. But going head to head against himself? This is a whole new level in low-end schizophrenia. Dusting off his old Infekto gloves (and recruiting the lyrical skills of Steppa Style), Rico expertly repurposes the well known guitar riff from Barrington Levy's "Murderer" and flips it into a timeless energetic breaks track. Reminiscent of the 'Stylers back around the early thousands, this will slap several shades of sweaty from any skank-minded dance.
