Oh, I almost dismissed Nocturnal Emissions as an unknown bedroom producer. But the web research revealed a completely different picture: The Nocturnal Emissions have been around since 1980! Back then it was still a real rock band that played industrial and punk. The electronic phase followed in the 1990s, followed by a minimal and downtempo phase. There are even two in the oeuvre of the London band (which has only consisted of founder Nigel Ayers for several years). Dub-Recent albums. The newly released album "In Dub" (Holuzam) presents a selection of eight tracks, all taken from these two albums. So not necessarily brand new material, but still pretty exciting because Nigel Ayers obviously doesn't give a damn how good it is Dub has to be. Instead, he delivers extremely weird minimal productions, which without the clear album title can hardly be considered Dub would be recognizable. With the mindset "Dub’ but the album can be understood as a great experiment: How abstract can the music be without the classification ‘Dub“to lose entirely? Or to put it another way: How far can you go Dub reduce until it stops Dub to be? The amazing realization: Pretty far. But Ayers is by no means only interested in minimalism. His economical tone sequences are interesting listening experiences and sometimes even develop a remarkable groove. Anyone who thinks outside the box of the conventional Dub If you want to look out, you should simply enjoy the Nocturnal Emissions (the wet dreams).
