||1.||"Nearly Africa Dub"|
||2.||"I Have A Dream" (feat Benjamin Zephaniah)|
Luke Slater's ever-vital LB Dub Corp alias makes a welcome return to Ostgut-Ton with its blend of catchier house dynamics and flamboyant motifs ahead of a soon to drop LP. In the case of "Turner's House" it's the catchiness of the lead synth that grabs you straight away, hopping as it does around a peppy scale as the drums playfully jack between different patterns. "Nearly Africa Dub" is a more subtle affair, reducing the rhythmic sparks down to a linear thrum and feeding the bass line in and out like a particularly teasing bait for the track. Finishing with the most daring track of the lot, "I Have A Dream" gives a vast cushion of organ swells and dubbed out broken techno to Benjamin Zephaniah to pontificate on modern culture in a wry and dry tone.
