Dub from Porto

Via Dave Wesley's Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda) label

Dave Wesley runs the record label Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda) out of Porto, Portugal, and also records his own music. The spectacular “Laranja Swadhisthana 67_5 Session v1” is, in his words, “Constructed with the principles of sacred geometry and tuning… using parts of the north and the south… and with the fury.” The result is a slow driving pulse, around which harsh ghostly wisps come in and out of focus. Over its ten-plus-minute duration it builds to a filmic, almost orchestral expansiveness, yet it maintains a static core that marks it truly as dub. It is an example of that rare blend of meditative music to which head bobbing is as natural a response as is introspection.
