Review: Following last summer's scorching anonymous first CV white label "War / Fan Dem Off", RDG's label returns with another mysterious never-to-be-repressed doublet. Fittingly cold and wintry for this time of year, both "Sly" and the much-coveted "Teardrop" are taken to glacial places. Deep, smoky, spacious and foggy, both cuts burn long smouldering fires both at home and in the dance. Grab them while they're ice cold.
Review: Inspired by an abandoned Ukrainian city, Piezo and Clearlight (both respected solo artists in their own rights) join forces to create an icy fiver of uncompromising deep modern dub compositions. "Pripyat" opens with icicle-minded designs before dropping into a spacious percussive jam that's at once unforgiving and cosmic. Dig deeper for the guttural bass and tech-rhythmic dancefloor-minded "Scourge", the trippy, liquid drum lollops of "Fallen Soul", the slow-and-sludgy techno march "Here Comes The Toxic Rain" and the lonely, fearsome and highly isolating designs of "Punarbhava" which owes more to modern classical than it does dub or dance music. An immense, occasionally challenging and highly thought-provoking project.
