Disciples - The Message
More crucial excavations from the Boom Shaka Lacka archives, originally out in the 90's, and now back in press, and available again for a normal price via Partial Records -
Disciples heavyweight steppers style remains a singular sound within the UK Dub sphere, especially the gear that was made in the 90's, no disrespect to the newer works though, the Disciples discography keeps growing and growing.
'The Message' was originally out via Russ Disciples Boom Shaka Lacka imprint around 1995, along with the mighty 'Sunrise' cut, and it's been hard to find / expensive&dear for many years now, so it's great to see a clean pressing of this deep, heavyweight steppers cut from the Disciples archives, pressed up on a 10" this time, and brought to us with two extra 'raw mixes', so you can really dive deep into the version excursion - Five dub mixes of this gargantuan piece of dubwise. Things get real raw, the further get into these mixes - rising washes of feedback echo, phased drums and reverberant bass all conjure up a sense of toughness, with a majestic hornsline creeping in the shadows of the echo chamber, as the drums, and the bassline rain down hard.
