Rootplex is proud to present the next chapter in hieronymus' grainy dub meditations. Four drops of the finest dub blend perfectly engineered for lazy and hazy afternoons/nights.Kicking off with the dark and dirty riddim of "opaque", featuring rough basses, textured chords and hardcore dubwise mixing technique. A delicius peace that gradually lulls us into the zen-like state that the second track "ecto" radiates off. A true epic journey of reverberating, wet soundscpapes unfoulds throughout the 10+ minute duration. At times reminiscent of the timeless "quadrant dub", with it's deep futurist feel of rain-drenched nighttime cityscapes.
Things get more pumping and heavy by the third track "going north", where dark synth stabs fluctuate and evolve on top of a rolling groove-construct. Possibly the most techno infused a hieronymus riddim has ever been – a hypnotic journey through a concrete jungle full of sonic obstacles and traps, echoing from impossible angles.
Durango ends with a free floating dubwise-groove, with intricate beat syncopations, beautiful dubby chords and delicious evolving spaces. A perfect balance of traditional and modern sonic sculpting is achieved throughout all four pieces – but it's definitely here on the last track it's most prono
Enjoy another dubby aural pleasure from rootplex and stay tuned for more deep badnees.
