Suns Of Arqa are back on Emotional Rescue with a new single that finds them building on their illustrious career fusing Indian classical approaches with dub energy. "Acid Tabla" works off a steppers thrust but equally capitalises on the textural, rhythmic delights of the titular tabla. Who better to remix such an outernational dub excursion than Adrian Sherwood? His treatment is a light, respectful tweaking that keeps the spirit of the original intact. "Asian Rebel" on the B side is a more confrontational track with its abrasive sonic splashes and unsettling bassline. Hyphen Collective then seek to make a more meditative brew out of such fiery ingredients, and their dub mix more than rises to the challenge.
