The EP kicks off with the Empire Cannibal Dub of Assimilatione, which features a somewhat unusual ragga vocal slung over dubby, tech-house beats, in which he appears to be informing us that he's going to eat our liver. Which is all quite irregular, unless of course I'm hearing it wrong in a 'kiss this guy' comedic fashion. Wicked, wicked tune though!
Next up is Quasar, presented here in its Tango Control Dub form. This one's more of a sofa-surfer, with sampled speech from space missions (and a background crackling that we're told is the sound of the Andromeda galaxy) atop laidback but insistent 4/4s and pads a mile wide.
Sono Vera (in Disco Futura Dub form) is more experimental, bringing a slightly psychedelic/space rock kinda feel to the party, though still within deep house territory. If you dig The Time & Space Machine you'll love this. And finally, Starfield [Humility Dub Session] is the deepest and dubbiest of the lot, and another corker.
So much for describing what the tracks sound like, as for what they FEEL like I strongly suggest you dim the lights, lean back, spark up a fatty and enjoy for yourself! Like I said, this is just ridiculously good, especially Assimilatione which is a cert for the next Mixcloud show if I can get my arse in gear.
