Entering the red planet with turbulent fury, Double O kicks up a dust cloud with “Martian Soil,” an amen workout layered in dissonant pads worthy of the war god’s namesake. Gremlinz & Jesta continue dropping the pressure on “Recourse”, whose iron drums are bolstered by rumbling bass, threaded with hypnotic inner planetary transmissions. Finally, we warmly welcome Effra to the Rupture camp. “In Breaks We Trust” pulsates across the tense percussive landscape like a beacon from the abandoned Martian ice cap...

As Rupture’s journey across the solar system of breaks continues, tribal drums call from the darkest heart of the Earth planet. On “Baiana,” The Untouchables conjure up ancestral voices from the rich depths of the Amazon Basin, while J Robinson’s “Congoman” arrives with dripping percussion and a bassline caked in rainforest soil. Dubmonger makes his Rupture debut with the dramatic atmospherics of “Varmints,” whose warped snare riffs sit atop rumbling low-end that pours slowly like night time magma.

Fresh from the frontiers of modern jungle, Rupture returns with a monolithic EP from new-comer Mani Festo. The tightly textured breaks of “Immortal” create the foundation for a set of stabs that will cut through even the foggiest dance floor; while “Awake” balances a dreamy pad atop cascading percussion and a thick, rumbling bass line. On the flip, snatches of 808 claps flicker in the shadows of heavily crushed drums before a familiar sample of off-world blues noir flows across the entire operation in “Hold the Line’’ – a track that has earned a lot of attention since being on heavy rotation in Rupture residents’ DJ sets. Finally, closing track “Warehouse Theory” stacks disembodied organ riffs over driving breaks to round off Mani Festo’s debut Rupture release.

Repress 7th September 2018
The Fifth Column is a secretive resistance movement that strikes from within. This album is its manifesto.
From cavernous, tribal experiments in dub vernacular to tense, tweaked out soundscapes to glittering atmospheres refracted through sheets of furiously inventive amens, each of these sixteen tunes stands on its own merits while reflecting a different facet of our sound; never stuck in the past, never nostalgic for the sake of it, but staying true to the soundsystem roots of this music. Each one is an exact articulation of our collective identity.
We believe that every single one of these tunes channels the spirit of the original artform, and that every single one of the artists involved has put their own twist on the culture and built something that will stand the test of time.
