Review: White Peach daddy Zha returns to his own persy bakery for more dread bread bass. Every bit as tasty as previous Naan excursions, it's another eastern banquet; "Floating" is soft, spacious, spongey, singular and liable to sweep any wavey people right off their feet. "Shower" flips the vibe entirely for a bashy, reverse string splash-about while "Father" is a head-first drive down a shimmering sitar rabbit hole. "Jaan" sends us packing on a magic carpet of hang-drums, deep mystic pads and gentle strings. Life affirming.
Review: Woof! Hyperdub bring together two of the most recognisable and enigmatic artists of recent times on this 10", as Zomby and Burial square down ahead of the former's new album for the label. Zomby's Ultra LP is undoubtedly one of this year's most anticipated albums and "Sweetz" suggests it may be a very moody affair indeed. Whilst rooted in UK dance, Zomby and Burial do look elsewhere for inspiration too. Just under seven minutes long, "Sweetz" veers through various sub-heavy soundscapes with intermittent rhythmic patters and a distinctive looped vocal sample whose pitch changes with dramatic effect.
