(iN)Sect Records, who have a difficult-to-type name, present a new 7” from Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program, who is in with the Brainfeeder LA crew. As the title Other Worlds and the group name suggest, there is a Sun Ra tinged afro-futurism here, refracted through an intoxicating electronic palette.
Vinyl 7" £10.49 RS045-7

- Other Worlds by Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program
Starting with a J Dilla esque siren wail, this is some seriously squashed dub sample with the bass all subby and booming. Dancehall vocal samples are spread sparodically overleaf. Next up the sound of a reggae festival taking place in the next avenue with shards of mc's rattling rhymes over the top. This is interesting stuff - I can only describe it as a Dilla who, instead of using soul and r&b samples, is working with dancehall and reggae. On the B there’s a faster rhyme placed on top which clutters things slightly before something a little more world music. Well im pretty sure they live in the world right? Whatever, it's full of cut and splice avant hop collages.
