EL RAKKAS (Lo Dubs/Echodub/Elevate, Graz)
» Austria, it turns out, has its own thing too, and as one may expect from some of the dub reflective electronic sounds of other regions nearby, the new release by is laden with a mystery and depth which seems to be highly reflective of some lost knowledge related to the way of the dub. We really can’t imagine anything thicker than these tunes right now, in their own way. It almost seems to only have a kinship to the sounds of doom metal, in that it is simply overwhelming, the thickness of it all.
When we first started playing these we thought of them more as beginning of the night type tracks, but once properly amplified, they simply fill every crevice of a room with low end, as if you jumped into a Chuck E Cheese ball pit filled with Bass bubbles. We noticed people wandering towards the dance floor, as if hypnotized by some pied piper. That’s when we knew we had to release these tracks. We will be releasing a remix 12″ of this material as well, featuring a side by LV, and a side by XI. « (Lo Dubs, 2009)
