A landmark experimental dance release for the jaded clubber and avant-weirdo alike
The full-length follow-up to Lee Gamble’s recent ‘Diversions 1994-96’ EP on the fantastic Berlin-based PAN label picks up similar dismantled pieces from his last release – an EP which was made up of old and sourced samples from his 90s jungle mixtapes and pirate radio sessions as a teenager, reimagined onto a largely beatless, digital canvas.
This concoction of abstract and realised ‘computer’ music with that of revivalist jungle and rave sensibilities marks Dutch Tvashar Plumes as a landmark release for the jaded clubber and avant-weirdo alike. The buried techno stomp on tracks like ‘Plos 97s’ and ‘Coma Skank’ has ghostly qualities akin to some sort of dancefloor séance, being channelled through countless digital filters. This year, both Gamble and PAN are reconnecting dots to some seriously exciting places.
