Moonshine 26 review

After the well-received ‘Homage To The King’ album by King Yoof, the Moonshine Recordings camp proceeds with its twenty-sixth single on 12-inch wax and digital. Madplate Sound, the dub production duo originally from Turin and Bristol, is in position for its second vinyl release featuring the lyricists Jago & Galak Spiritual.

The duo’s next single catalogued as ‘MS026’ receives both a healing remix and dub version treatment by Steppas Records’ head-honcho Alpha Steppa, who has recreated two master- pieces from Madplate Sound. The way these original samples weaved through the musician’s mixing desk results into a flawless dub sound.

Loyal listeners of known Moonshine Recordings content won’t be surprised when they hear the original version of ‘Tension’: its anthemic status is derived from strong brass elements, low- pitched bass and fitting vocals from Jago and Galak Spritual. Along with the confident pace, dedicated dub mixing and peaceful sound textures, Madplate Sound allows listeners to drift off to Jah without any use of imagination.

Alpha Steppa steps up the to plate by bringing forth a more laid-back stepper for the flip side. While the Steppas Records’ dub-in-chief mainly focuses on both the ultra-sonic and low-end pulses, he settles the vocals to the forefront intelligently. This way, he achieves a refined inclusion that outweighs anything you’d come to expect from the English producer on remix duty.

The dub version is even more meditative than the existing remix, notably when it propagates through a good set of speaker boxes. The singing is almost completely stripped, remaining elements are heavily delayed and the reggae riff is pushed further into space. A refined sound remains, which really forms the oculus of this gigantic dub that smoothly corresponds to everything you need to enjoy full delight in dub.

Just wait until you test this repertoire on twelve- inch vinyl: you will notice why we love to house Madplate Sound and Alpha Steppa’s music. This joint 12-inch heavyweight release will gladly be part of record collections across the globe. Make sure to spread the word, so we achieve unity!
