SOUNDTIPS → [ AAVV – Elephant Bass Vol1&2)]


vol 1


What better way to start a web sound lab “Elephant Bass”, where the passion and love for the good vibes is the only constant assured, with a selection of the many songs received in recent months by members of the homonymous group on facebook .
The result that comes out are 2 volumes with a thin imaginary dividing line between music and sound dubplate style and melodies that are directed to explore experimental sounds.
We thank all the artists who participated, all selected or not, and a very strong thanks to all those who push forward the sharing and love for music in all its forms.

SOUNDTIPS → [ JAH ROOTIKAL STEPPERS – Jah Rootikal Stepper (Dubkey)]




This is Dubkey’s first steppers album by a UK artist. ‘Jah Rootikal Steppers’ it says on the tin, and that’s exactly what you get!

Rasta-inspired heavy roots steppers, dubbed the way they should be!

As is the case with all steppers releases, the metronomic bass drum is king here. The bass is loud, and the melodica is present on most of the tracks. Other highlights include great percussion sounds, sirens, sick electronic effects, and a peculiar trombone!

‘Jah Rootikal Steppers’ features nuff innovative ideas but it also pays homage to the 70s originators of dub.

Playback on huge bass bins is highly recommended.
