Released by Pressure, “Disintegration Dubs” kicks off with G36’s ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’, pairing oozing air-raid synths with what sounds like a stadium full of stomps and claps. The effect is sort of like a jock jam but slowed down to a queasy crawl, in a good way. JK Flesh’s first crack ‘Dosshouse’ is even more sinister with its cement-scraper sound design and throbbing low end. On the B side G36 lays out the record’s thesis with the track closest venture towards the dancefloor on ‘Good Vs Evil’ and JK Flesh answers it with the mutant dub-techno of ‘Precinct’.
It’s rare to hear a collaboration between three distinct producers that sounds this much like a conversation between two artists on a similar tangent, and a deranged one at that. It’s a blessing all the same for those with the stomach for the grimey, darkened noise they kick up on the “Disintegration Dubs“.
