Record Label: Cold Busted
The latest transmission from Cold Busted’s seven inch central reveals the slinky dub sounds of Mister T and Krystian Shek, each contributing a lively cut to get the crowds in a proper skankin’ mode. This third seven inch release in Cold Busted’s reggae series leads with “Sufi Dance” from Greek beat-wrangler Mister T.
A master of multiple funky genres, Mister T shows his acumen for the island sound on this smooth track, first appearing on the Cold Busted compilation Dub 2. Carried by steady guitar chord chops and a melodic horn line, “Sufi Dance” features a heavy drum beat and echoed-out sound splashes of both an earthly and metaphysical nature.
Frankfurt-based producer Krystian Shek – a veteran of Pete Namlook’s FAX +49 – 69 / 450464 label as well as his own Thai Dust imprint – displays his own dub-matic bona fides with “Postbox 1902”, a new track exclusive to this release. This one struts forward in an irie fashion, powered by cool guitar plucks, calming Rhodes chords, and a deliciously upfront bass and drum rhythm section. This wax is primed and ready for the DJ’s spinning platter, and both these cuts appear here on vinyl for the first time. Big up!
