amoss Bumbaclart / Dilate (burgundy vinyl 12", £7.95)label: Horizons Music
Bumbaclart is a deep, dark look into a Jamaican-inspired nightmare. Claustrophobic, mind-melding atmospherics surround a spoken intro, before a deceptively simple beat/bass dichotomy kicks in later on. An explanation of the meaning of the word is surrounded by pounding, groove-fuelled melodies, leaving you reeling and reaching for more. Amoss build worlds with everything they do, and they do this expertly on Bumbaclart. Dilate, meanwhile, builds from an initial electric pulse to a steady-growing groover, by way of some neat percussion. The underlying pulse gets louder, invading your mind, as layers are added on top. Amossís sound is addictive, almost catching you unawares with its complexity and artistry. LIMITED TO 200 COPIES.
