A sweet find. Didn’t even know I had this in one of my archive boxes! An old December ’96 copy of DJ Magazine and a two page article on No U Turn and “tech-step”, describing the genesis of the defining Mutant Jazz Remix. I’d completely forgotten the Jimi Hendrix tidbit and Bless! Look at the fresh-faced Dom boy hehe…
Don’t be afraid of the dark P1
Don’t be afraid of the dark P2
A strange, lugubrious, droney bit of bass/dubstep drift down the K-hole. Makes a nice change from all the bass line filth striving and rootical formularising going on out there. The bubbling acidic squelch line that fades up about half way puts the icing on the dark squat rave vibes.
Parisian sub fusionists (not to be confused with Slovenia’s Dub Diggerz!) give it some tight’n’hard, locked down, metronome, hoods-up business. ‘Public Nuisance’ is probably the coldest tune; gliding through the rain soaked streets, random looting and burning going down, hunting Replicants again kind-of-vibe. Just another night in the dystopian Megacity.
