Review: Swedish sub lovers Redvolume recruit new face OOT. Making a strong impression from the get-go, "Street Slug" slinks with more pace and funky manoeuvrability than its name suggests. "Get What I Can Give" exudes authenticity. Classic dub bones wearing futuristic clothes, its measured meditative dynamic is given edge with purring alien bass and mesmerising traces of unique design. Powerfully deep.
Review: Bridging the gap and joining the dub dots with musical clarity and abundant talent, Dutch newcomer Dub Archipelago returns to RedVolume with a masterful seven tracker that takes us right back to the foundations before surging us far off into the future. Developing from melodic and soothing to heavy and meditative, each of these densely textured cuts bode just as well at home or on headphones as they do through a soundsystem. Those hungrier for the heavier flavours should jump on the palpitating bass thunder of "One, Two" or the stark skanks and guttural low end grumbles of "Untitled Meditation". Other highlights include the majestic walking bassline, keys and mild melodica whispers of "Lift Off!" and the mesmerising layers of bass and dynamic space at play on the tripped out "We Are Lonely People, Yes". Original dubwise material.
