Review: 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!
Review: 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.
