pure, distilled dub. upholding jamaica’s legacy as well as germany’s unequivocally influential dub techno spirit, moonshine recordings proudly welcomes their next addition to the roster. on the controls for the 9th full-length album release, a true-to-the-roots, all-analogue musician: another channel. having put himself on the map with releases on soukah’s blacksoil records, bristol’s transient audio as well as on australian imprint modern hypnosis, it’s now time for the album release we’ve all been waiting for. no computer involved as impeccable arrangements and analogue reverberations unfold. live and direct in the original dub mixing fashion, the augsburg-based artist uniquely transports the sonic characteristics of rhythm & sound into the present time.
the next modern hypnosis sees the first official vinyl release from another channel. the young german producer jonas schachners (another channel) has been at the fore front of the new wave of ‘dub techno’ that has been lurking in the underground over the last few years. his dubbed out analog sound has left some accrediting his productions as ‘picking up where rhythm & sound left off’. his debut 12” gives us two very unique tracks. the a side ‘lord 35’ is an energetic synth driven tune which sitting at 135bpm, in a two-step style is made for the dance. the b side ‘corruption’ sees an international connection with the original composition created in germany by another channel, then the overdubbing of vocals supplied by ethiopian vocalist enushu taye (the black jesus experience) in her native amharic, recorded and mixed by mystik in his melbourne studio. the warm analog stabs and punchy bassline accompanied with enushu taye’s haunting vocals makes for a beautiful piece of music.
