Review

Honest Jon's present this sonically challenging but quite excellent twelve inch from Actress, allowing us the chance to indulge in his quite singular vision via some long overdue original material ahead of a forthcoming third album slated to appear in the spring of next year on the West London imprint. Always a musician who prefers to keep his captive audience guessing, it would be churlish to presume how that forthcoming album may sound on the basis of "Rainy Dub" and "Faceless", as neither will be present on it. However, there is plenty to admire here, with the lead track described quite presciently by the label as the "alien son of Sleng Teng". Just like that riddim pioneered a new wave of digital dancehall when Wayne Smith joined forces with King Jammy on "Under Me Sleng Teng", "Rainy Dub" seems to signify a concentrated shift in Cunningham's focus towards ever new jagged dissections through the fuzziest extremes of sub bass. Minute attention to detail such as the near indecipherable vocal gurgles trapped far beneath ensure you keep returning to the track, as new sonic elements come to light. "Faceless" creeps towards you like second album highlight "Purple Splazsh" regurgitated through a robotic variant of the human centipede, with the track's hazy melodic elements desperately trying to claw through the claustrophobic rhythms, creeping corroded textures and rising gurgles of stomach acid.
