Another tremendous Transnational Bass compilation from Celt Islam’s label Earth City Records.
Starts off in killer fashion with an Arabian Dub number by an artist called EQuBE, quickly followed by a chilled out dub number by the main man himself, Celt Islam. Cheb Semnil comes in next, another artist from Manchester and it’s a track that has a Beatlesque and Prince’s “Around the world in a day” era psychedelic vibe with dollops of Sufi Dub.
Haelu is up next with some deep, dark and experimental cinematic dub. Celt’s band Analogue Fakir come into the fray with an Electro-Dub number following the deep and dark mood of the previous track.
Another artist I’ve never heard of before, MayaXperience make their entrance with a Sci Fi PsyDub number. AreaWolf and Ionika brighten the mood up with some Luvstep vybz. RaJaz’s numba has a funky dub vibe to it with lounge atmospherics. Croydon’s SAOV have been involved in this scene for absolute years and they don’t disappoint with their Arabic flute lead breakbeat and in parts breakcore track.
Trans Irie Nation follow with a very celtic sounding number that pays homage to Tibet. Zetan Spore up next with more travels into PsyDub territory. Johnny Guiterrez invokes Hindu spirituality with his “Krishna Puto” number. Spiky double dubs the dub with more heavy dub, spliff number.
Back to Celt again and another one of his alter ego’s with his band Nine Invisibles. Teiwari Dub round things off with the deeply spiritual “Ancient Inscriptions”.
All in all, tremendous compilation that is highly recommended to anyone interested in exploring the real Transnational Bass Underground.
