Disrupt - Foundation Bit

Werk's most punishing bass transmission to date.

Album title: Foundation Bit
Artist: Disrupt
Label: Werk
Having toured with the mighty Rhythm and Sound last year, everyone's been talking about Disrupt of late (check that Breezeblock mix), and Foundation Bit definitely does not disappoint. This is definitely Werk's most punishing bass transmission to date and Foundation Bit rides the current dubstep frenzy whilst playing upon the classic Studio One sound and the echo-heavy atmospherics of Basic Channel. But this is no mere Burial imitation; Disrupt takes the standard reference points of dub and reworks them with joyous abandon, drowning valve organs in glitch and recreating the skanking sounds of King Tubby in Casio and Atari bleep. Foundation Bit is the plain where analogue and digital collide and Mario shares philosophy with Haille Sellasi. Praise mighty Jahtari. [Liam Arnold]
