Time Will Tell (feat Structured & Amanda Seal) (6:11)
Demolition (feat Slippy Skills) (6:26)
Review: Two more superb tracks from DBR UK's widely received debut album Rough Edges. "Time Will Tell" is a fantastic balance of jazz and future with its tightly sprung twostep that swings across the mix unhurried before Amanda Seal's velvet vocals and big minor chords change the dynamic entirely. "Demolition" shows DBR UK's darker, grimier underbelly with its rolling drums subtle bass stretches and precision articulation from Slippy Skills.
Review: Two titanic names on one massive 12" - Dispatch don't mess around do they? DLR takes the lead with a wriggling, sinewy acidic number where the elements are tightly woven but have stacks of space between them at the same time. Flip for the deliciously wonky funk cut from DLR and Total Science as "On The Edge" does a really far-out springy off-beat thing that sound odd to begin but grows on every listen... Just the way all old D&B records were created. Proper.
Review: The North American jungle assault continues as Dispatch welcome an old friend (Quadrant) and a new one (NC-17) for this powerful double-tracker. "Dub Central" is a lean warp-focused track where a pulsating bassline groans over the anchored kicks. NC-17 goes it alone for "Only One Way Out". Upping the savage factor a notch or two, there's more of a shred to the bass as it rips through the spectrum with a classic air of Renegade heaviness. Muscular.
