With its deep and technoid sounds, Babe Roots serves the niche that has faded into the background Dubtechno. The sound of the Italian producer duo is reminiscent of publications by the genre pioneers Rhythm & Sound. In contrast, the relatively young project succeeds in catching reggae hooklines more often. On the first work of the same name, listeners discovered not only “Kunta Kinte” but also Burnings Spears “Jah nuh dead”. In addition, the songs do not lose themselves too much in repetitive stretching, nor do they disappear into insignificance after listening to them once. The great success of the debut LP in 2017 attracted a number of interested parties. In addition to the founders themselves, Mike Schommer, DB1, Felix K. and Forest Drive West now dismantle and interpret a total of five songs on the "Remixes EP". The latter two inflate the original works by a few minutes. Forest Drive West thins out in a minimalist way, while Felix K. drives brutally forward. Schommer's new creation is most successful: after half an eternity, almost agonizing white noise, the Deepchord co-founder lets the dogs off the leash - albeit leisurely. This EP brings together interesting excursions and approaches for all those who do not run away at the term techno. For use in the sound system, turntables should better use the original publication and heave babe roots out of the neglected niche. "Remixes EP" is available as vinyl or download on Echocord.
