- Against The Tide / Trinity by V.I.V.E.K
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 21 September 2012
I’m probably not the best lad to reviewing this (Brian! Where are you?) super deep V.I.V.E.K 12”. You see, I’m not all that keen the modern dub style and I struggle to find words to describe what I’m hearing. Still, it’s V.I.V.E.K so I’ll do my best.
You all know the lad. He builds massive soundsystems and crushes the fuck out of anyone who dare step to the speaker. He makes records on Deep Medi (though this is on Tectonic) and hangs out with the mighty Mala smoking hi-grade and dubbin’ it up. His tunes seem to be impeccably produced and ultra DEEEP and ‘Against The Tide’ is no exception. Skeletal in its minimalism it’s like some mind-bending late night techno jam slowed right down for the CHILL! It’s a bit mystic voodoo as well.
Flip it and things begin slowly with the introduction of soft pads, then a brief moment of slience...then, BOOM! DUBSTEP MATE! When it kicks in it reminds of what I’d expect a slug in the jaw to feel like if Vangief was on the delivering end. Powerful shizbiz. I’m down.
