Dubplate #1: Space Within Art

Review: The 2nd Dubplate follows the Persian 10", presenting a combination of highly prized and archival dub influenced music to be given a deserved wider appreciation and some, a first pressing on vinyl.

Little is known of B:dum B:dum Sound except they came from the ever mutating Manchester art, film and music scene. Based around a core of Jamie Crossley, Nick Farr, Steve Gears and Karl McGinley, they merged their backgrounds in post-punk through dub and the City's vibrant dance scene, to produce their sole 12"" - the 1993 self released (and Bolton Art Council funded) B-Dum B-Dum EP.

Containing the perfect marriage of samples, sound design, dub and house in Istanbul, the music was perhaps too ahead of its time, becoming a secret for the City's aficionado's and diggers. It's appearance on the "Originals" compilation series, included by Moonboots and Balearic Mike, brought it to wider attention and reverence and today sees the EP selling for upwards of L300.

The tracks inclusion being worthy alone, also included however are the unreleased Stateless and 3 tracks making up the flip, all culled from a mythical album some 10 years whence, of deep dub vocal, with nods at techno, that makes this 10"" essential.

Dub the Mystery.

Feel Da Vibe (feat Brother Nebula &  Alphonse remix)
Cat: MYS 011.
Deep House
  1. Feel Da Vibe (5:23)
  2. Feel Da Vibe (Brother Nebula remix) (6:23)
  3. Silver Spaceships (6:47)
  4. Silver Spaceships (Alphonse remix) (7:42)
Review: Persian, the man who launched the label in 2017 returns, again offering classics from the archive tapes in the Garage bounce of Feel Da Vibe and the Jungle tinged Silver Spaceships.

Since appearing on Acetate 10" back in (where were you in) '92, Persian, Persian Prince or Artist Formerly Known As PP, aka Peter Riley, has been following his own path, breaking ground with self released, slabs of dynamite wax.

Delivering a myriad of styles, from Breaks to House, Digidub to Jungle, here, as with MYS001, the original masters were handed to contemporaries to work their magic. Brother Nebula is a secret non de plum of a producer who has been around long enough to know the score, switching continents and releasing music on a myriad of labels before setting up his new Legwork label, creating a fresh wave.

The respectful but wonderful spacial dub house remake of the anthem Feel Da Vibe builds perfectly before snaps bring it back down to Earth. Alphonse (Especial / Klasse Wrecks) however, heads for the heavens with an expanse of floating percussion that explores the line between Breaks and Jungle to move Silver Spaceships in to a new decade.

Khaab (140 gram vinyl 12")

  2. Khaab (Project Runaway remix) (7:49)
  3. Parvaaneh (3:07)
  4. Parvaaneh (Alphonse remix) (6:13)
Review: Peter Riley's back story as Persian reaches back to the early 90s - his back catalogue of crucial, sought after deep house cuts is a must-grip for any serious digger of globetrotting grooves. [Emotional] Especial taps up this vaunted producer's archives to present two of the finest productions he's ever committed to wax. "Khaab" is a subtly bumping jam with gorgeous square wave bass, smoky pads and evocative vocal trysts. "Parvaaneh" is a spacier cut that puts the bass front and centre and does away with the drums, making for a powerful, atmospheric statement to create tension mid-set. Project Runaway remix "Khaab" in a respectful, immersive fashion, and Alphonse nudges "Parvaaneh" into a dense and chugging roller.

Revolution (12")
Cat: ER 025. Rel: 24 Sep 19
Drum And Bass
  1. Persian & DJ Staf - "Revolution" (4:45)
  2. Persian - "D Dub Retwist" (4:29)
  3. Rumbling Interlude (1:55)
  4. Persian & Nick Dunton - "Milton 21" (5:52)
  5. Persian - "Not Nuff Time" (feat Lauryn) (5:57)
Review: Since kickstarting the Existence Is Resistance label back in 2011, Persian has been on a mission to offer up sleazy, forthright and downright inspired UK bass music. He's at it again on "Revolution", joining forces with various like-minded fellow producers to lay down more scintillating and searing sounds. He first joins forces with DJ Staf for a bombastic revivalist jungle affair (the ace "Revolution"), before inviting Nick Dunton to help wrap wild electronics and gentle melodies around a more off-kilter D&B rhythm on "Milton 21". Elsewhere, Lauryn adds evocative vocals to the dreamy breakbeat flex of "Not Nuff Time", while solo salvo "D Dub Retwist" sounds like a more sub-heavy take on the mid-90s Ninja Tune trip-hop sound.

Well Well Well (D Ross Dubplate Mix 1998)
  1. Persian & DJ Texsta - "Well Well Well" (D Ross dubplate mix)) (5:21)
  2. D-56M - "Homage" (feat Decarlo) (5:11)
  3. Persian - "Parvaaneh" (Retwist) (6:53)
  4. Persian - "Questions" (edit 6) (5:01)
Review: D Ross is in fine form on his dubplate mix of the low slung, swaggering and rude as you like "Well Well Well". It's bass lead garage with an infectious appeal that will make whole warehouses march. D-56M's "Homage" then sinks into more murky techno territory, with wiry electronics and sludgy bass taking you into the unknown and then Persian's "Parvaaneh" slows down a notch further, with dubby chords and twitching synths sinking you into a dream state. He closes out this most interesting and varied of EPs with "Questions", a techno track with dusty breakbeats and deeply buried acid that is fresh indeed.

  1. Persian - "Worries In The Dance (Jonny Rock Slightly Tingled Worrior edit" (6:03)
  2. Vertigo Inc - "Numbers" (5:36)
  3. Asian Psilocybe Foundation - "Wave Control" (7:17)
  4. Afrobuddha - "Obame (Treat mix)" (6:38)
Review: The Mysticisms label is doing a bang up job creating a particular vibe on their label. Rather than sticking to a sound, they're pursuing an attitude, an energy. It's rugged and dirty, rooted in no-nonsense old-skool values - a bit cheeky but totally serious at the same time, built for the freaky DJs who like to go a bit off piste. This tenth installment kicks off with Persian's 'Worries In The Dance', shuffling hard on a ruff n' tuff house shuffle and edited with flair by Jonny Rock. Next up Vertigo Inc. presents a giddy rainforest of 8 bit bleeps and wonky synth flute, while Asian Psilocybe Foundation take things slinky and shimmering on the crisp 'Wave Control'. Afrobuddha takes things further out with a powerful African drum exaltation, all dense thickets of percussion and uplifting group singing.
