Mighty double dubplate squaring off NYC’s Blazer Sound System with Melbourne’s CS + Kreme in a heavy steppers duel for Efficient Space.
Trodding heavy after a respective s/t 10” for YOUTH and one of the albums of 2020 for The Trilogy Tapes, this plate catches two of the best out there right now in a contrasting one-two of dread pressure and deepest ambient dub lust.
Comprising Nathan Corbin (Zebrablood, Excepter) and Tony Lowe (Rainstick), Blazer Sound System chase up their debut 10” and acclaimed NTS shows with a Jah Shaka-via-John T. Gast-styled juggernaut in ‘Tanka Riddim’ for the ‘90s digickal steppers crew, while CS + Kreme have us utterly rapt with the ‘90s ambient digidub flex of ‘Crushed Cream’, with signature 808 boom-crack synched to Conrad Standish’s devilish bass work and achingly on-point pads that make for an instant addictive effect.
Bit of a no brainer this one. Choice tunes on both sides.
