Dubkasm – Concrete & Steel – Pengsound010
Still very much in fresh dubplate status, Concrete & Steel is a recent production coming out of Dubkasm's BS5 studios, and in their own words 'they're heaviest yet'. Having been hammered heavily on dubplate by Dubkasm, Gorgon and OBF over the last few months, Peng Sound obviously didn't want to delay the next release any further (it's been over a year since the last one came out - time flies) and got four earth-shattering cuts straight from the mixing board at the Dubkasm studio - Now pressed up on a 180gsm heavyweight 12", 'Concrete & Steel' comes mixed and dubbed in four alternate ways - from the raw 'Carbon Cut' on the A1, to the ultra-dubwise 'C75' cut on the B2, this record has all the best ingredients of a 90's stepper, like a Disciples cut from the Boom Shaka Laka days, but with an inimitable Dubkasm flavour. The disc has been mastered and cut by Lewis at Stardelta, and pressed up at the world's best pressing plant 'Optimal Media' in Germany, now sitting at Tape-Echo & RwdFwd HQ, all stamped up and ready to be sent out to a record deck near you. Upfront copies go out via rwdfwd.com this Thursday at 6pm UK time. AND! Peng Sound have also repressed the much in-demand Gorgon Sound vs Twilight Circus & Ras Alla and O.B.F. 12", this one has just arrived from the pressing plant today, and it'll be shipping alongside PengSound010 this week. Big shouts to everyone supporting the vinyl scene, don't watch the post-Brexit vinyl production price hikes, just choose quality and stand firm.
