the last point at which d+b had half-a-point?
that sort of cleanly-dirty production, that stereofield-snaking b-line thing
totally linear in its propulsion, none of the bebop-style drop-the-bomb B-line thing you got with classic-era two-lane-tempo jungle, where the bass in a sidling motion in relation to the drums..
flattened out in that respect but still in its narrow swingless way a rush
reggae influences burned off completely but also hip hop too - breaks that don't break, bass that pummels rather than booms
the drums become this whirring skitter
the hard rock name fits, although Motorhead would be far more apt - especially as so many of the tunes are to all intents and purposes identical
in an odd way a distant cousin to gloomcore - but with nothing close to the same lushly emotive atmosphere
yes this next one would seem to be a totally apt tune for them to be remixing
except they really make a silk purse into a sow's ear don't they?
they won't let the doomy riff ring out, they fuss it up, fill out the sound
still i really wouldn't mind having caught them in their prime
but i had long jumped ship to UKG and 2step ysee
