Run by Cessman, Dubliminal is a label "representing a multi-cultural melting pot of futuristic roots music". Here, for his imprint's 11th release, he steps up to deliver Research And Development, a four-track exploration of the outer limits of bass. "King Of My Mind" sees a seriously cool cowbell assault some stop-start beats, while "Babylon Must Fall" sees him explore his garage and jazz days but with a modern freneticism, "Fundamentals" betrays some house and even D&B influences on this forward-thinking floorfiller and "Inner City Vibes" balances the fine line between cool jazz sax and Guru Josh with great gusto.
Dubtechnicians provide some sweet, rolling vibes in these two highly charged releases on their own label Dubliminal. It's wordplay a-plenty here so you can be sure it's the music that does the talking. Title track "Masturbating Sweet" is all deftly placed snares, twinkling melodies and shuddering bass stabs with a swaggering beat and laden atmosphere. The accompanying piece "Morning Sofa Chat" builds from a stripped back intro, with grating synths into a weighty main part with metallic SFX and glitchy beats. An all round success for the Dubtechnicians here - salute!
