Young Echo Records

Regular price

Added to your cart!

The 4th disc on Young Echo Records is here, and it comes locked & loaded with Jabu re-works from the extended family: SKRS & Jay Glass Dubs at the controls!

Pressed to 12" with two remixed cuts from Jabu's Sleep Heavy LP on Blackest Ever Black, YE004 follows the murky lyrical showcase from Manonmars alongside O$VMV$M, and reaches out to two producers who have been operating with similar style & fashion to the YE family over the years -
forward thinking, eyes-closed, ears-open individualism is the order of the day, and these two remixes showcase this unique application of sound in loose dub structures perfectly.

Long time RwdFwd heroes, ever since we first got a package with those self-released SKRS 7"s from them 4/5 years ago, the mysterious, ever-prolific, multi-faceted Vancouver-based soundsystem graces the counter-side to Jay Glass Dubs, who's recent work for Bokeh Versions, Berceuse Heroique & Ecstatic Recordings has made us eager-eared fans for sure.

... Basically, this trinity of Jabu /Jay Glass / SKRS is pretty perfect, if you ask us -
Just listen to the clips and try tell us otherwise.

Each approach the originals with their own take on skewed & stretched dubwise styles - letting the vocals swerve & sway over hypnotic rhythms, off-kilter atmospherics and big belly bassline... Like the best of dub, there's an instant infectiousness to the rhythm, and a new-found focus on the original elements of the song - however, it's too easy to apply the dub-tag to this - SKRS & Jay Glass Dubs are doing their own thing - listen and hear for yourself.

12" mastered and cut by Lewis at Stardelta,
Served in printed kraftliner disco bag, designed by Joshua Hughes-Games,
