Almost exactly a year ago I professed to find the album "Reconciliation" by Ras I Mothep shamelessly good, even though it consists exclusively of rather brutal SteppersDub offered. Well lies with "Orbital Dub System" (Subsquad) the next album of the Sound Systems from Aix-en-Provence, and again I have to listen in fascination. The simplest digital productions, pure rhythm, endless bass and otherwise 4-to-the-floor. Where's the sophistication? where the art Where's the good taste? I don't know, and I can't think about it because my head is full of bass and digital thump. Seriously: It's not easy to write a differentiated review about the music of Ras I Mothep, but on the other hand they are Dubs from the south of France too beguiling to pass up. Let's put it this way: The rich sound of Dub can also be broken down to very simple basics: syncopated beats, bass, effects. That's exactly what "Orbital Dub System". The secret lies in the arrangement of the beats, which follows a secret formula: it is directly intertwined with the metabolic processes in the human brain and creates involuntary compulsion. Forced to listen to the next track. The obsessive compulsive is aware that he is being tied to this muscle against his will. A terrible fate. So think carefully before checking out the album.
