The Space Ritual label launched last autumn with an intriguing mini-album from Oddnip, AKA experienced producers Luv Jam and In Fields. Here the imprint changes tack, serving up a quartet of tasty tracks from new and little-known artists. Kalisdassa steps up first with the psychedelic, shoegaze-goes-Balearic chug of "KR1", before Joe delivers a deep space dub of Zmatusi's "Wet Grout", where gnarly guitar solos trade blows with kalimba style melodies, sparse electronic beats and fuzzy, analogue bass. There's more heat to be found on the flip, first from Tony Pineman (the tropical dub disco hum of "Kaneda"), and lastly Tross, whose "Colonization" somehow joins the dots between heavy Afro-dub, deep electronica and post-punk experimentation.
