Dubwise landing from Beam Up on ZamZam! -

Here we are... Another fresh delivery from the postman, direct import from the ZamZam HQ in Portland, USA -

The next instalment in the highly collectable series of 7"s on the D.I.Y. label comes in the form of two differing, bass-heavy, echo-laden cuts from the once UK, now Berlin resident 'Beam Up' who has delivered some choice dub excursions in conjunction with One-Drop Berlin in recent times.

Zweimal - translating to 'twice' in German - Steppers kickstarts the disc, with a pulsating 4 x 4 rhythm that urges it's way through the syncopated percussion and the swirling reverb and delays... Expertly crafted and executed echo chamber styles here, enhanced by a guest performance from the french 'Dubble Dubble' on keys.
A surefire stepper that sits in it's own smokey sphere whilst containing all the right ingredients for upfront soundsystem use.

Flip it around for a rootical affair with a double-time twist....
Featuring Joelistics, making great use of the original 1966 Fender Telecaster guitar - Joe Strummer’s favorite - as well as some brilliant horns playing by Beam Up himself, the retrospective, forward-thinking 'Higher Level' delivers fast-paced action in perfect complimentation to the first cut...

All topped up with a typically lush D.I.Y. aesthetic, this is another great addition to the ever-growing ZamZam collection.
