crucial heavyweights poldoore and emapea each take on a side of this cold busted 7“ single, the latest in a bi-monthly series of dub / reggae cuts exhumed from the label’s golden vault. belgium’s poldoore commandeers the a-side with an instrumental version of ”this road“, a track originally found on his acclaimed 2016 album the day after. stirringly dubwise, the cut is wet with atmosphere and the ping of spring reverb, as a tuneful horn section carries the main melody. flip the wax for accomplished polish beat-maker emapea and his delightfully skankin’ ”rudeboy“. previously appearing on the in dub 3 compilation, ”rudeboy” showcases emapea’s knack for combining samples from multiple genres into one cohesive, steamy gumbo. with either track, b-boys and natty dreads alike will give the dance floor a serious workout as the needle meets the vinyl.
belgian producer poldoore (born tom schillebeeckx) has revealed the day after, handily providing a sequel to his well-received previous album on cold busted, the day off. within its eleven distinctive tracks poldoore has further developed his vibe-rich sound, creating deft blends of funk, soul, lounge, and reggae topped with punchy drum breaks.
