It may sound strange coming from someone who loves dub techno, but on a whole I haven’t really found most the old skool dub tracks that engaging when listening to them, I always feel they are missing something. The first track I heard from the album was “InVoiceDub” and, being honest as I usually am, I wasn’t really feeling the track or the whole “re-visited-back-to-the-roots” style. I’m glad however that I listened to a few more tracks from this album as I was surprised to hear the more familiar sounding chords, echos and delays that have made me grown to love the dub techno sound so much.
Seekersinternational has really pulled off this style in the album. Managing to combine old and new sounds to create a very deep, hypnotic sound.
Somewhere at the junction between night and day, we find seekersinternational plunged into deeper rub-a-dub territory engulfed in the hazed light; trudging on by a faint ember of promise; hearts smoldering; echoes of an ancient cry.
Digitalis aren’t known for their dub affections, but SeekersInternational’s ‘The Call From Below’ is a choice pick for this always-interesting imprint. Coming from an unknown soundsystem posse, it sounds something like Rhythm & Sound meeting Actress and Vladislav Delay for a knockout zoot round Pole’s place; essentially a destroyed dub session of the finest calibre, with initial copies coming to you on purple wax.
