Deadly, utterly unique dubware from the brand new collaborative project of Alter Echo (aka Sound Secretion, Josh Derry) and E3 (Systemwide, Bucolic). Combining orthodox dub techniques and esoteric studio science with an Eastern sensibility and a love of vinyl archaeology, AE & E3 create tracks of extraordinary sonic detail and power, evoking Jamaica, North Africa, and deep inner space all at once. "Kufic Dub" combines a storming, martial riddim and Middle Eastern strings with disorienting samples and echo chamber mayhem to create something entirely new and devastating for the dance and the headphones. Anchored by a powerhouse steppers riddim that alternates 4/4 and half time, "Dub Is Not Easy" reels in the desert vibes and casts out a ghostly net that snares desert flute, rasta voice, binghi drums, haunted keys, tape rewinds and spectral effects for an utterly transporting track. Dark dub for fans of early On-U-Sound, Demdike Stare, King Midas Sound, etc. Edition of 400 copies packaged in hand-screened jackets.
