Originally contrived on the streets of London-Hackney, then properly finished off in a Leipzig trailer squat in 2009, this hissing debut EP by Jackson “Tapes” Bailey is spooling low-end goodness in fast forward mode.

Magically clashing 80s digital dancehall (Gold Love Riddim, C20 Riddim), ultra-wonky beats (Hackney Dub, Lowry Dub) and BBC Radiophonic Workshop / Library music vibes (Ticker Tape) this masterpiecce is buzzing with bass-charged Ferrum particles, ready to set off on a journey that will reel your mind.

The Science Ninja team WaqWaq Kingdom is returning to our solar system with this brain melting five tracker, continuing their space exploration program where they left off with the 2017 epic “Shinsekai“.

Gravity- and genre-defying disc, including a mystical appearance of dub poetry sensei Roger Robinson!

Mastered and cut to wax by Pole / Scape Mastering Berlin, with artwork by Miles “Bokeh versions” Opland.

From the remote township of Te Mata, in the rugged hills of New Zealand, comes a new imprint following in the tradition of mid-80s rub-a-dub from an often overlooked corner of dancehall culture.

The brainchild of local farmer and radio personality Red Robin – alongside the deadly production duo Naram and Art – the first 12” features two heavy-like-lead riddims with discomix cuts from four unsung heroes of the 80s with conscious, street-level lyrics.

Side A finds legendary singer Winston ‘Midnight Riders’ Powell rise again on a synth-infused piece of classic rub-a-dub. Despite being his first release in decades, he delivers a cutting edge vocal from his Kingston 9 borough about life Outta Road in the Jamaican capital. He then crosses live to special agent Speng Bond for a deejay report on the current state of Britain in Dread Outta Road.

With a more uptempo riddim, the flipside sees Toronto-based 80s star Steve Knight fire some timely shots at corrupt politicians with Dem a Fraud before Los Angeles-based MC Tippa Lee comes correct with a self-affirming deejay cut on Salute the Veteran.

Both sides are served with one-away dub mixes from Naram and added textural touches from disrupt. Mastered and cut by Pole / Scape Mastering for extra heavy low end. Strictly limited pressings.

Maffi, Denmark’s deadliest riddim construction duo, is back with a vengeance and a fresh 6-track EP, filled with strictly original riddims that have been jammed live onto a Sansui multitrack cassette deck for that special extra grit.

Side A finds the Parisian father and son team of Colonel Maxwell and Junior Roy in top form – with Roy’s youthful melodies gracing the stone cold killer “Tuff Like We” and Maxwell issuing a gruff warning to all those who favour badness on “Bad Bwoy Style”.

On side B fast chat originator Peter King is vaguely recalling the lyrics from his forgotten classic “Bad Memory“, first penned for Fashion Records back in 1985. With this new voltage-driven riddim, the Maffi version won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

UK sound system legend Asher Senator then joins the fray with a self-titled lyrical lesson straight to the head of all those who fail to show due respect to the veterans.

With disrupt on dubbing duties and a jaw dropping hand-drawn sleeve by Kanato, Killah Tape is a crucial acquisition for any discerning selector or collector. Limited pressing!

disrupt – Dub Matrix
With Stereo Sound

DISRUPT “Dub Matrix With Stereo Sound” JTR16 release date: 19.01.2014 12″ vinyl (€ 8,99), digital
ADD VINYL TO CART BUY DIGITAL
While for many of us the Nintendo Gameboy evokes fond memories of endless hours with Bomberman, Tetris or Legend Of Zelda for DISRUPT this ruff and tuff little buddy turns into a serious sound-killing tool. Dub Matrix With Stereo Sound is the culmination of years spent refining the art of handheld gaming console-based riddim construction, using the LSDJ tracker cartridge and disrupt’s beloved Gamebwoy – especially modded up for maximum bass weight. Featuring nine crisp cuts – each built strictly on the Gamebwoy before being dubbed out with disrupt’s superbly pimped up Korg Monotron Delay and mixed to cassette – this mini LP is not a joke ting. Heavily road-tested on Europe’s biggest sound systems (used as interludes during disrupt’s live sets), these dark and deadly riddims have been scientifically proven to mash up the dance. If you’re a lover of extraterrestrial 8-bit dub, this may just be the holy grail. So don’t fanny about, bag this one quick – because like all Jahtarian output, this pressing is strictly limited! Artwork by Fabrice Claude (Subactive Soundsystem).

In a match made in deep dub heaven, our next 12″ sees legendary Berlin-based mic chanter Paul St. Hilaire, aka Tikiman, meet the indomitable knob tweakers behind the Jahtari Riddim Force.

Opening with the cavernously deep Rhythm & Sound-esque Nah Ina It, Tiki strikes a lyrical blow against the myriad Babylonian forces creating schisms across our world. And no reprieve is granted to the evildoers when his conspirator, Raggamuffin Alex, issues a further decree on this epic Rootah disco mix in a devastating singjay fashion.

On the flip, toes can’t help but tap to the bouncing beat of Who Goes There, with Tiki flexing his fast chat chops alongside the swirling arpeggios of disrupt’s custom-built SID chip synth (check the video below to see how the riddim was made!). Tiki then drops back an octave or two on the sweet but ever-so-slightly demented riddim of One O’Clock Rock to keep things ticking over in a gruff rub-a-dub style.

And the finale, Love Jah Now, shows Tiki comes well versatile – with a vocal delivery nodding to the late, great Sugar Minott. The otherworldly dubwise atmosphere offers the perfect foil for a deeply conscious message.

Stunning artwork by Kiki Hitomi.

Coming straight from a solar powered shipping container in Australia is this heavy twelve by Melbourne’s number one sampling warrior Monkey Marc, who’s mashing up Hip Hop and Dub inna down under style like no other. With the analogue filter modules in constant overdrive mode, a groove not found on any map and a bass too deep to measure, this rugged masterpiece develops a complete life of it’s own. All faithfully recorded to cassette and then dubbed out to the max by disrupt – including a dub of Roots Manuva‘s “Who Goes There” (from his 4everevolution LP).

The master of the magnetic scrolls is back at the boombox with his second Jahtari EP, once again exploring the more rugged corners of the dub universe. On Side A ‘Where Is The Time’ creates a rhythmical space-time paradoxon straight away, with harmonies that stream right off a dysfunct flux capacitor module. Next up ‘Persian Pulse Width’ switches the tape heads into heavy current mode, driving a battery of damaged 8-bit-chips into a thermal meltdown.

Side B contains two special cuts of older Tapes gems: a 12″ extended dub mix of Vernon Maytone’s ‘Old Pan Sound’ that originally came out on a now hard to find 7″ on Tape’s Selah Wadadda label. And an ultra-heavy, extra-crackling cassette mix of the ghostly ‘Pipe Cleaner’ with haunting flutes by Diggory Kenrick that recently appeared as limited 7 on Meeuw Muzak. Serious voltage baked on tape here!

Deadly disc charged with raw sound system vibes by the man called Mr. Williamz on a bunch of heavyweight Maffi riddims, coming straight from the Copenhagen underground. With scorchers like “Sit Down Steady”, the must-have “Where The Man Come From” and the anthem “Dancehall Hobby” it becomes clear very quickly that this man’s favourite hobby ain’t stamp collecting…

To give it a nice sound-system-tape feel the tunes have been faithfully run to cassette and back, Tapes dubbed up the Kriminel Riddim live, the bassline in the Hobby Riddim is by Pupajim and disrupt rolled it all up into a big one in the end.

Like the “Tann Up Solid EP” this one also comes with a masterpiece of a cover from Ellen G. / MyLord – a genius tribute to the veterans of sound system culture! Boomshot record – not to be missed!

The Maffi helicopter finally takes off again for it’s next mission, this time with a Rub-A-Dub specialist team on board who are about to infiltrate unsuspecting dancefloors worldwide. Sensi expert Kenny Knots parachutes out first with a boom tune called “Herb From Grow” in his backpack, while special agent Speng Bond – with the license fi toast – is keeping up the vibes in the flying command center with “Tann Up Solid”. The Ninja MC team Rub-A-Dub Market, who usually run tings and sound system special ops code- named “Part2Style” down in Tokyo / Japan, are at the controls of the B-side with their track “Fever”.

Inside the suitcase on the backseat is the “Robotron Riddim”, the dub version of Ranking Levy‘s “Mad Man Syle” (from “Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 3“). Three murdah Rub-A-Dub cuts on some rare, early Maffi riddims plus one Dub – for your ears only! All produced and dubbed up by disrupt in the Jahtari bunker, with a bomb of a cover from the Superhero team Ellen G. / MyLord, who also did the masterpiece sleeve for Mr. Willamz’Dancehall Hobby EP“.
