About this item

Another Whodem 10" relic from the archive. Strong and fierce, industrial steppers by Cessman who touches on proto-dubstep stylings via the A-side's "Militant Dub". Characterized by tuff snare hits, aggressive bass, and an urgent groove that wouldn't sound out of place on a DMZ record.

On the flip, "In The Beginning" treads a similar path - somewhere in between the eeriest utterances of dubstep and the most futurist of steppers dub. Military snares, eerie melodica licks, rastaman vox and digital brass stabs make for a track that'd sound at home on Deep Medhi as much as Aba-Shanti's pivotal "Jericho Walls Verse III" LP. Big ting! 


Matt says: One of my favourites from the recent Whodem salvo. Modern steppers dub which seems to have cross-pollinated with the early dubstep prototypes from Digital Mystikz, Loefah et al. Agro bass, neck snapping snares, jump-up energy.. proper fierce.
