Soul Mass Transit System is a familiar name to fans of Shall Not Fade’s highly popular garage imprint, Time Is Now. The Leeds duo made up of producers D. Jason and Baby J have been favourites of the series and of the UKG revival in general, recently scoring a release on another trend-setting label of the scene, Dr Banana.
The Dubble Trubble EP traverses the wide range of very British club sounds with ease that only comes with expertise, from frenetic hyper breaks to deep dubstep bass. Opener ‘Give It 2 U’ tempts listeners in with its dramatic rolling minimalism, forward off-kilter drums and a chest-rattler of a sub. Sludgy A2 ‘My Name Is Down’ centres a Niche style bassline, plenty of swing and dubwise sensibility. On the B-side things ramp up a notch; ‘Trubble N Strife’ tears it open, peak time cybernetic junglist gear with more than a few tricks up its sleeve.‘U Got Me Burnin’ is a real climax; jubilant, hands-in-the-air rave nonsense that closes out a collection of solid dancefloor toughness with more choppy breaks.
The Dubble Trubble EP drops September 4th via Time Is Now.
