Come Together (version - Digikal Ruff cut dubplate) (3:37)
Review: Step into the future of dub with this swaggering slice of goodness from Paco Ten. It continues in the fine tradition of Old Hard Bread who had a top year in 2019 and come good again now. "Come Together (Digikal Ruff Cut Dubplate)" piles up the drums and hits into a clean and crisp riddim that's finished off with impassioned vocal cries and wails that melt into futuristic synths. The version on the flip is a subtly different affair that makes just as big an impression.
Review: Nick Raphael and Steve Gilder were Sound Iration and in 1990 they turned out this essential bit of early roots. It was initially super limited with just 350 copies with the b-side left totally blank. Long out of print and hard to find, it now gets a crisp reissue on Old Hard Bread and still gets you where it matters: The title track has a snaking lead harmonica line that wanders to and fro and takes you with it while tumbling drums and percolating synths ripple out into infinity. B side "Etched" is a more echoey and spaced out, fatter and deeper cut.
