I've been overwriting for so long now Dub and I'm still surprised by productions that really catch me without my being able to say exactly why. At least that's how I feel with the new EP "Brutal tide“ (Dub Records) by Simba Kahn. At first glance, three simple Steppers productions (+ three versions). Digital and just like my dear co-authors of the Dubblog they don't like. But for me the EP is in permanent rotation. Why? I'll try an explanation: 1. I love the dynamics and timing of the beats. I can't keep my head still while listening. Somehow the groove fits my inner rhythm completely. 2. The polyrhythm of the percussion fascinates me. No way, "simple steppers-stamping"! Various rhythm structures lie on top of each other and combine to form a fascinating, complex, simple pattern. 3. The sound system atmosphere brings me to my most beautiful Dub-Memories off. This is Mukke, which was written for dark nights and tall speaker towers - and for hundreds Dubheads who skank in their rhythm. Oh yeah, who is Simba Khan anyway? I would have to go to an Indian Dub-Producers typed. In fact, he lives in Belgium, where he is a member of the Islanders Sound System. You have to keep an eye on the man.
