Jay Glass Dubs goes deep and hard on two drum-machine-heavy winners for Dub On Arrival, the dubwise limb of Gothenburg’s iDEAL Recordings
Stepping in the wake of his sprawling, brilliant ‘Epitaph’ album, he wields scattered drums in acres of spooked-out space, only disrupted by bass stabs on the buoyant, belligerent ‘Thumb Dub’, crisply cut for extra jagged bite and punch.
On the other side’s ‘Index Dub’ he chucks his pots and pans into the echo chamber, where they spiral down long corridors of reverb until they gain terminal velocity and gel into a juggernaut steppers’ riddim - proper shckout gear.
The heaviest JGD yet? Aye.
