Soundman Ft. Jack Pescod
Classical Dub (Return Of The i )
Worldwide release: June 13th 2016
A scorcher of praise for the spirit of dubwise: Soundman delivers an intelligent and shockingly tight mini Opus Requiem with grace as he revisits the Classical period.
The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, known as the common practice period. This piece shows off Soundman’s composition, arrangement and production skills as well as the truly deep understanding of both the Jungle and Classical genres which by the sheer idea shouldn’t really mix together but he has managed to achieve this with ease. The rhythm section including the drums ad libitum ornamentation, frequently heard in non-European art music and in dub, jazz, blues and popular music. When you draw for this dub, your set will be propelled into the hemisphere.
On this cut Soundman sets the production with a rolling heavy bass-line staying true to his jungle hit making standard. For the piano solo he draws for a huge Classical talent in Jack Pescod is a self taught pianist, an original composer, songwriter and natural improviser. Jack’s work seamlessly bridges the gap between piano jazz, classical and eastern influences. Jack began playing piano at the age of five having been greatly inspired by the stories of his great, great grandfather Michal Bergson – composer, Librettist and pupil of Chopin.
‘Classical Dub’ is a powerfully dramatic and energetic masterpiece of epic proportion. Opening with a sparse string section layered with the flute and brass which drops into a very heavy Jungle set against a theme of filmic strings, followed by a further drop which then features the amazing piano solo that brings the track to a crescendo..
Soundman and Jack Pescod: A collaborative competence in new drum and bass development and its performance effects of forces that’s nothing short of musical success.
