And now for the main event...The C-side brings us the finest moment in the whole of the Joe Claussell catalogue, the insane, uncompromising and fucking epic power of "Bambara" in its "Tribes Of Distortion Dub" form. Originally released on a limited (and now impossible to find) 12" back in 2011, this 12 minute monster builds from a deep and moody bassline, growing with each percussive hit and queasy synth tone into the mind altering, life changing bomb we've all been looking for. FX spit and snarl like a engine revving into life, nudging us ever closer to the exultant vocals and wild keyboard solo which follows. And then it's gone, dropping us into a chasm of reverb, echo, disjointed bass tones and chopped vocals which lasts a FULL two beatless minutes, and then we're back - deep, nasty and techy as it gets shaking the walls till the very end. Phew! Thankfully the classic Afro-jazz action of "Ju Ru Music" (here in a slightly different mix to its 2006 release) is on hand to offer a breather and some gentle sunkissed grooving.
Making our way onto the final side, we get the warm, sunny and sublime "Diamonds", a daytime delight of a house workout, perfect for your next terrace set before waving goodbye via the uplifting Afrobeat of "Hillbilly Africa", as joyous a gem you're ever likely to hear.
And now for the fun part...inside each LP package lurks a special individualized download code, which will lead to one of 10 individually mixed versions of a track from the album, which will be mixed specific only to the code found. Also amongst the 300 records produced there will exist only 25 unique codes.
