In this unique collaboration London’s Subaltern Records and New York’s TUBA team up to deliver a compilation featuring some of the finest artists from both sides of the pond. As one would expect of the combined selection of two taste-making labels, they've packed in a weighty 12 tracks ranging from all out system tunes to melodic headphone skankers. Interestingly, several of the producers featured have released with both imprints. The strength and musicality of these tracks demonstrate that Subaltern and Tuba have succeeded in 'bridging the gap' and creating transatlantic musical exchanges. TransAtlantic Volume 1 is due out on February 9th. Volume 2 will follow soon.
Renowned radio host and dubstep veteran BunZer0 throws in what is best described as 'intricate' - this track does many things but it doesn't follow rules. Like a mechanism indeed, it remains high tension all the way through, with mad, syncopated rhythms and driving subs, this one is more than just a tactical weapon for the club. Use with caution.
