Pdub & The M-Vibrator - Take Time EP

Not got loads to say about this one. It's a four-tracker of what the hype sheet is calling 'dub-inflected tech-house', I think they're over-egging the dub/bass side of things a little TBH, but it is good, and it is pretty bassy.

It's also, in places, a little too glitchy for me to get hugely excited about… until we come to Can't. Can't is basically what acid house music should sound like in 2010 – not in terms of being covered in 303s, cos it isn't, just in the sense of being a big, squelchy, bouncy-ass house groove. Me like, a lot.

Don't get me wrong, the other three tracks – Take Lime, Sprouts and Tsirimintzoulu – are all fine in their way, playable chunks of Berlin-sounding house/techno for sure, but Can't is the one for me here. Boing!

Out: August 30 or possibly Sept 6, they don't seem sure…

About: The rather oddly-named Pdub & The M-Vibrator hail from Athens. Permanent Damage Records who've released this, on the other hand, hail from London. You can find out more about Permanent Damage here. I'm sure Pdub (etc) must have a MySpace somewhere but I'm getting tired so you'll have to look for yourself, sorry...

**UPDATE: Another one that made it onto the Mixcloud show above (Can't, naturally)
