Exciting new label Eclipse Tribez kicks off its imprint with a 12" by Cabasa
who the label 'A&R'ed' at the Worldwide Internet Memes Meeting in Daussoulx (BE) back in December 2014 (!!!). The offspring of a major player from the Belgian New Beat scene back in the late 80’s, Cabasa is the continuity of his father’s passion. Drawing influences from electronica to jungle and techno, he’s seeking for boundaries between beatless and rhythmic compositions; looking for the most danceable and esoteric music.
Credentials aside, this is some highly arresting musica. "Uso Sketch" announces its arrival through a tribal drum chorus bolstered with some 808 subs and snippets of vintage breaks. "A L’école' returns to the drum cirlce with some newer additions - electronic drums, Roland hand claps and a skitty rhythm that recalls General Ludd's frenzied experimentation. "Defective" sees more poly-rhythmic intricasies explored with aplomb, as Cabasa hammers home his obsession with the beat. "Uncle Sigmund Lost In Qattara" concludes, nodding to the recent Aiwo camp with its haunting breakbeats and ethereal textures. Stumpendously strong release from a camp to watch - major T I P on this one folks...
