Cloud Management / Gavsborg - Tempentary Dance / Did not make this for Jah_9 feat. Shanique Marie
Post-golden pudel klub anti-brexit hand-to-hand exchange of 7's from new-ish label dispari, given to us direct from label boss / selector Phuong-Dan from Hamburg to Berlin, then back to Bristol in hand luggage style - here we present to you the latest 7" from the label operating out of Hamburg (and pressing at our fave lil 7" pressing plant, Ramona) -
This disc comes locked and loaded with two really great pieces of modern dubwise -
The unexpected but great combo of the Cloud Management trio (Love Songs band / Ulf Schütte) and Gavsborg, of Equiknoxx fame, with a special vocal appearance from Shanique Marie - flying the flag for modern JA dancehall, and beyond.
On the yellow side, we have Cloud Management opening up proceedings with a wickedly dubbed out, highly organic piece of roots abstraction - sounding, to our ears, a bit like one of Lee Perry's early drum machine productions and his most sparse dubs, Eko ComputeRhythm type vibes, but draped in the warming hiss of the shakers and splattered with the paint of warbled echoes and spring reverberations.
Either way, we'd happily listen to those drums of the first section shine in their (dimly lit) analogue glow, and be satisfied - however, after a minute or so, we get treated to a nice big belly bassline, adding extra addictive factors the the overall sound, and giving it another nudge into deep dub territory.
Lush, this one.
We'd happily pay the money and get the disc for that one tune already to be honest....
But let's not forget about the orange side.... Equiknoxx's very own Gavsborg at the controls, with singer Shanique Marie lending her signature sound in vocal form - just for a rhythm guide this time though, letting those incredibly addictive synth arpeggios step and tumble over a stop-start dancehall / abstact boom bap drum beat type rhythm.
Once again, Gavsborg manages to make the music sound effortlessly 'easy' - but trust me, there are tricks in the mix (and just the general vibe) that make this leagues above the rest.
First Edition of 300 copies.
Served up looking real good, in a nice thick poly sleeve, with two printed tranaslucent paper inserts.
