Tino’s Breaks - Volume 5 / Dub LP
Tino’s Breaks goes Dub! This album is an audio head's dream come true. Rare Jamaican bits, drums, bass, reverb, tape echo, tube amplified drum kits. With this double record, Tino takes a skip across his own back yard to Jamaica.
Dangers, Stokes & Powell team up again with drumming legend, Tino, to explore the fascinating world of dub. Tempos range from 72 BPM to 140 BPM but all tracks adhere to the simple rules of dub as described by Tino, ". . .by pulling in & out many channels of [the] mix, the engineer [creates] an entirely new composition on the fly." In that same dub spirit, Tino boldly embraces the gratuitous use of reverb and delay for full, [fuzzy-headed] effect!

SONIC STRUCTURES MBM has also generously donated a track for the Brainwashed 4th Anniversary CD Compilation, to be given away with subscription copies of UK-based The Wire magazine. Copies will also be sold in a limited special package from the brainwashed website. More details also due soon, release date expected later this year.

Studio Wise Last year saw Meat Beat Manifesto's record deals with their labels, Play It Again Sam Records and their U.S. licensee, Nothing Records conclude. Much studio activity has since ensued.

Also in the mix: Tino's Breaks, Jack's side-project born and bred with DHS entity, Ben Stokes has spawned one more big beat platter in this illustrious groovin' breakbeat series.
