Chechnya Over Dub

The following appeared on Boomkat.

Thuggishly hardass Bryn Jones breakbeat noise tackle, ventured by Ukraine's I Shall Sing Until My Land Is Free, a new label "dedicated to all the fighters for freedom and independenceā€.

Originally found on the 'Fatah Guerilla' 3CD set in 1996, 'Chechnya Over Dub' takes its place as the first move from a new label helping fund Ukrainian freedom - a cause we can only cosign. It's Muslimgauze in necksnap late '90s hip hop, dub noise and house mode, swirling sampled breaks and a couple of housey tumpers with overeasy amounts of distortion in a model that could be heard as a pre-echo of contemporary badasses such as FUMU or Rat Heart.

Chechnya Over Dub" is totally groovy, midtempo-beats connects with industrial noise and language-scraps to dance-pure sound-collages. "Camel Abuse Does Not Egzist In Mogadisu" sounds very strongly like house, it is however a 7/8 time

Dedicated to an independent Chechnya.

Dedicated to an independent Chechnya.

"There is not a single misanthropic ideology in the World, even in theory, acting more cruelly and cynically than russism ... No moral principles - they are all like animals. I don't want this war to stop. I need this war, its continuation. This war will go to the territory of Russia - whether Russia wants it or not ... And the Western countries, the world community will not let it be stopped in order to completely isolate Russia and destroy it as a state, so that this predatory beast on Earth no longer exists." - Dzhokhar Dudayev, the president of free Chechnya. April 1995.
