Released 25th November 2016
Ltd Vinyl Only release. With a vast new number of record labels surfacing during the ongoing resurgence of vinyl, it’s now up to Green King Cuts to bring its own history in dub-minded bass music. The CEOs Jake Hennessy and Liam Conway, who grew up together, will do what’s necessary to bring their values and those of their artists to a vinyl-only rundown – all for the love of sound-system music. The London born, Bristol based C-Side plays an important role in the first chapter of the label’s future outline. He has been focusing on the aesthetics of dubstep for years and is known for his enthusiasm within the whole creative process. The sound he blazons has overtaken international waters and now it’s time for his inaugural vinyl release. Its remixed by DEEP MEDi igniter Cessman, known for his anthemic collaboration with ‘King’ Kromestar called ‘Kalawanji’. The bass veteran and front-man of the Dubliminal imprint never fails to deliver a quality remix treatment that forms an ode to uplifting dub music. ‘Early Days Dub’ pays homage to the golden era of dubstep, containing hits of dubwise elements, a ruff bassline and the all but vital amount of delay. C-side explores the foundation of the music by incorporating a beautiful alto saxophone sting from a close friend that fuels the nostalgic feeling of old-school dub. The London born, Bristol based artist uplifts a vibe that comes close to system sound. Cessman blurs the original dub version with a lot of wet reverb and an even weightier bassline. All present elements swirl around its foundation freely, giving the solid percussion and vocal sample the right place in time. There’s no harm done when this built is played out loud in foggy basements. In fact it will bring forth the feeling of an old-school session purely for a skank & inner meditation.
