Disrupt is back on the joysticks and having another go on the subbass highscore with these two fresh robo-skanking low-end belters.
Berzerk Dub on A is a raw Elektro-Dub-piece in the 80s spirit, driven by a simple drummachine beat, a straight, heavy bass and spooky Robot chatter. On the side, the tune not only pays tribute to the first arcade game that ever used speech-synthesis (“Berzerk“, 1980) but also to Jeff Dailey, the first person who died while playing a computer game (Berzerk) in 1981, due to a heart attack after reaching a new highscore…
The title of Echobombing on B is self-explaining. An ultra-heavy bass, that will bomb any floor, is riding a HipHop beatbox and some rough 8bit-skanks. Lots of surprising turns and twists in this one!
This 7″ is limited to 700 copies and comes with awesome sleeve artwork by Jimmy Cauty (LC).
Mastered by Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.
This 12″, also containing the funky Amiga-tracker-intros to the tunes, foreshadows the brilliant album “Bo Marley vs. disrupt” that’s to follow shortly on CD. The Dubs by disrupt on this vinyl are exclusive and very different from the CD versions.

The first ever Jahtari-12″, “JAHTARIAN DUBBERS Vol. 1”. Three heavy tunes from our upcoming label compilation album plus an exclusive and new cut of Rootah’s “Holy Mount” appear here on this beautiful record. Every groove of it is filled to the max with deadly basslines, smashing delays and infinte deepness, just waiting to be discovered in full detail.
The opener “Roots Defender” by Blaze Dem will already smash any sound system with ease. With an ultra-deep bassline, a killer hook and crazy sampling madness in Swedish this tune is sure to shake any floor. Disrupt follows in his unmistakable style with “Kozure Okami” on A2, paying tribute to old 70s Samurai movies and Black Ark alike. From cutting-edge FX action, full force low-end niceness to a wicked synthie solo – all’s in there.
The B-side starts off with John Frum‘s echo monster “January Dub”. Soundscapes beyond words layered over these special drum and bass vibe that only our delay navigator is able to create are topped off with a big melody line that definitely will follow you in your dreams.
Rootah is finishing this heavy wax with his smaher “Holy Mount Part 2” which is nothing else but pure blizz, as you will see. Tube tape echo machines are being set on fire over this extremely hypnotic mutation of the Drum Song riddim. Watch your speakers. The original and pretty different version (Part 1) will appear on the full album compilation next.
“The mighty Disrupt camp return to wreak havoc on our subwoofers with a full-length selection of heavy dub, dancehall and dubstep variations straight from the depths of the echo chamber.
Disrupt himself looms large over proceedings with two heavyweight contributions – “Kozure Okami” and “Selassi I Continually version” – the former a skanking 8-bit dub blowout in finest, smoke-filled style, the latter employing a slowed down steppers vibe that reverberates and spins out in a plume of dub delay – its just mighty mighty stuff.
Type Record’s Julien Neto also makes a return to his “John Frum” moniker for two tracks of endlessly deep midnight dub – valve organs and shockingly weighty bass in tow. Ilyah & Candy offer another highlight – a squashed dub lullaby with sweetest female vox – one part King Tubby to one part Glass Candy, offering a good transition point and another unexpected move from this forever inventive camp.
With narcotic bassline killers from Blaze Dem, Rootah, Pete Murdertone and Blue Vitriol along the way – The Jahtari massive has established itself as a sturdy bass for a number of likeminded low-end operators, and this 10 track session is simply a must for all you Burial, Disrupt, Basic Replay and Lee Perry heads out there – and a bargain to boot. Killer wares all-round – ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!”
