IMPERFECTION, NO MORE (CHARLES MURDOCH REMIX) (+MP3)
12" Vinyl+mp3 D15.10.13
one listen to the crystal clear rapture in the sound of bodhi(cardiff 24 year olds olly howells and luke welsby) shows a heavily funk-influenced take on dance music, akin to many of the uks current crop of genre owning electronic artists (see disclosure, blawan, bondax). the response to their enchanting, dancefloor-ready vibe is already demanding considerable attention, with a bondax tour support under way and the likes of xlr8r already tipping these boys for big things.

in the great tradition of count ossie, four new grounation furies - hypnotic, thunderous, urgent, mystical - with dubwise repeta, funde and bass drums embedding the light of saba veterans gorgeous trombone classicism.
the opener is a rocking kumina rhythm, with ring-the-alarm metal percussion and exhortatory brass, free the people swirls some apocalyptic reasoning into the foggy, thumping mix. universe in crisis is another emergency call, chuffing headlong down the grooves ... before the beautiful, anthemic chant takes a step back from the fire, closing with a sense of thankful, spiritual reconciliation, the expert drumming and lyrical bone-work in full effect.
this 12 inch should come with a warning label. lion step proves that a tune doesnt have to be amen to tear down the place. heavily influenced by the more vigorous side of the dub spectrum, drum rolls, analogue synths, and even the lions roar combine to devastating effect. the flip side, no more games, initially suggests a more relaxed affair with its lush intro and plangent atmosphere. however, the dark clouds soon roll in and the track morphs in to an all out assault on the senses, underpinned by switching amens, cutting edge science and a string line straight from dark side. natalie’s rhodes begins serene and beautiful and unlike its b side companion remains that way. a truly diverse and unique effort from sci wax stalwart dub one.
dj support from: equinox (scientific wax / planet mu), code (subtle audio / nu killa beats kru), b-key (mute 8 / scientific wax), tom ravenscroft (bbc radio 6)
