I downloaded an album from Boomkat earlier. It’s dub. Big shaky dub music that make everything wobble in a good way. It’s called Foundation Bit by Disrupt.
It’s Boomkat’s album of the week and they say:
Probably the most talked-about BASS transmission of recent months – the long awaited debut album from Disrupt is with us and is doing things to our woofers we didn’t think quite possible.
Make no mistake – this is just about the best appropriation of Jamaican dub and 8-bit dancehall you’ll likely hear this year – with a slow paced skank and a filthy, uber-bassy production style that has more in common with king Tubby, Black Art and, for that matter, black magic than with any half-arsed wobble presets and lazy dubplates you just might have picked up these last twelve months.
Once inside Disrupt’s rugged echo-chamber you’ll find yourself immersed in a heady, narcotic cloud of smoke, moved by staggered delays, endless reverberations and a tranquilizing cluster of distant instruments and digital detritus all colluding to lull you in and f*ck with your mind good and proper. This is music designed for complete and utter sensory intoxication, tweaked and honed for intense stupefied skanking – and is quite simply one of the most beautifully heavy, chemically enhanced albums you’ll hear this year.
I’m not sure what all of that means, but I’ve been listening to it all day, and I have to say that it sounds like they’ve got it bang on.
I was excited (and a bit conned too) when I saw that you could get a few of the tracks for free from last.fm – which is cool for you, but I’ve already spent my money…
Get your free tracks from here:
But please, whatever you do, don’t listen to it on laptop speakers or shitty headphones, it just won’t make sense!
And if you decide you like it you can buy it from Boomkat download store here. Or you can get a CD if you’re that way inclined.
