daniel meteo and tom thiel are known as producers for hiphop-influenced dub electronica as "bus".
"bus" released 2 vinyl eps and an album on "pole's" high profile label ~scape (www.scape-music.de).
now on meteo 013 meteo/thiel debute under their own names.
"bass and go" takes a deep breath into soulful dub-technologies, following the line of meteosound-vinyl
series that cross borders between dub and elsewhere (see meteo 12" 007-012 feat. fenin, monkeytribe, the rootsman a.o.).
title track "bass and go" is a 114 bpm stepper with a strong approach of african beats, soulful dubtech
and handmade guitar works on top of a stomping riddem. a2 aka "we do" returns into a halftempo feeling of
classical dub that runs on pure dope: whispering melodies and voices, echos and !bass.
side b opener "miami" features electronic handwriting - warm sounds, chattering flamigo vst-guitars
and endless dreaming. this 4 track vinyl finishes too soon with "towards bounce", a simple declaration
of classic and future dubbology -- organs on and off from nowhere, bass let go...
