Bukkha - Back to Roots (w/ Lance Hume & Don Fe)
Release Date: 8th April 2022
Dreadwise Music is proud to present: Bukkha: “Back To Roots” An instrumental 4 track 10” single + Digital release. Featuring live Sitar by Lance Hume and live Flute by Don Fe.
By now the name Bukkha should be synonymous with quality productions and heavyweight dub sounds. Releasing on labels such as: Lion Charge, Zam Zam and System Music. Hot on the heels of his debut album on Moonshine Recordings. Dreadwise Music brings you “Back To Roots” an exploration of world sounds and dub.
A-side: “Sitar Cut” Showcases multi instrumentalist Lance Hume, as he skillfully weaves a mystical tapestry of nimble and expressive playing over the deep, earthy, 140 sub bass riddim that Bukkha crafts. Laden with percussive nods to India, dark synthy drones and a bright steady skank. “Sitar in Dub” is as hypnotic as it is heavy, a soundscape constantly being peppered by an ever changing array of echos and colour. B-side: “Flute Cut” features the superb Don Fe, playing joyful quick phrases accompanied by the warm reverb of picked guitar. While the moody Dub Version “Flute in Dub” takes us back down the dub rabbit hole, building slowly and then lurching ever forward dripping in echo and atmosphere!
Cut and Mastered by Beau at the legendary Ten Eight Seven Mastering. “Back to Roots” is a serious slab of pure heavyweight Dub goodness. A plate no self respecting head can be without. This is the 5th release from Dreadwise Music, a contemporary Dub label based in Nottingham UK. Focused on pushing a sound steeped in world music and Jazz whilst maintaining a dark Dub sensibility.
