Next up, it’s Conrad Subs with the “Rampin EP”. As one can guess by the cover artwork, it was released on Deep In The Jungle Records about a month ago.
Instead of writing about all tracks included, I’ll get a bit more into detail about three of them.
A quite unusual piece is “Basic Replay”, a very rhythmical tune with lots of short, percussive samples and snippets involved. I can clearly hear the “Bambataa” influences, but it’s less aggressive and more jazzy.
“Spit Shine” has a totally different flavor. More crashing in the drumlines, a short bouncing mid bass sound and many midi notes create a hectic feeling of being chased through the Jungle. I love that!
Still, my favorite so far is “Dubrock”, a oldschool classic tune with a very electronic sound design meeting a laid back dancehall vibe! Boom!
So, absolutely worth checking and highly recommended if you collect tracks with different influences and vibes! “Gemischte Tüte”, as we say in Germany!
