Straight out of East London, Pacific Rim Dubs mix up deep, bumpin’ house with soul and boogie, rude acid with funk and fidget grooves with pure disco. In a mash-up style, but without the comedy beats and not a whiff of irony in sight, Pacific Rim Dubs vol1 takes a selection of infectious snippets from the soul/ boogie vaults and blends them into proper house floor fillers.
A Side: “On The Raz”: a deep, bumping house groove with a formidable disco hook. The secret lovechild born out of the fusion of soulful, jackin’ house, minimal tech grooves and lush disco loops.
AA side, track one: “Ain’t My Loved One”: If ever there was such a thing as Acid Funk, this is it. A long teasing, squelchy acid intro kicks off into a deeply swung, infectious funk groove, topped with a cut-up soul vocal peeking in and out. Getting massive play from Crazy P/Ron Basejam.
AA side, track two: Already getting play from Tom Middleton, Jimpster and charted by Nic Fanciulli, this one has more cowbells than Kerri Chandler and a relentless fidget feel over a rolling disco groove.
