“Without On-U there would be no Ninja Tune.” Matt Black (Coldcut)

If Coldcut x On-U Sound’s album ‘Outside the Echo Chamber’ is a modern day Mothership, ‘Vitals’ is its advance dispatch pod, hovering overhead and gripping you in a warm sonic tractor beam, bringing news of joyous, multicoloured musical thunder. Featuring fellow maverick and frequent Coldcut collaborator Roots Manuva, ‘Vitals’ is a spiky rallying cry for Britain’s indestructible musical melting pot.

Forget austerity, Articles and all types of assholery, it seems to suggest. There was a time before all that; a time when fathoms-deep dubs massaged your eardrums, irresistible drums beat onwards like hearts, and soul on fire lyrics told it like it is. That time comes again.

With a true-school dub remix from Dennis Bovell (alongside Mad Professor and Adrian Sherwood, the third column in the Holy Trinity of UK Dub) this is fresh, sharp UK music, looking inwards and outwards at once. Take a step outside the echo chamber - it sounds better out here.

The album “Outside The Echo Chamber” features Lee “Scratch Perry”, Roots Manuva, Ce’Cile, Toddla T, Junior Reed, Dave Taylor (Switch/With You.) and is out on May 19th 2017 on Ahead Of Our Time (Coldcut’s first label). Coldcut celebrate 30 years in the music game this year!

about

Coldcut London, UK

Most people come into music, do the same thing for a few years, slowly sink back into obscurity and spend the rest of their life collecting publishing royalties and re-forming for tribute tours. Their biographies can afford to be quite short – most of us aren’t that interested in golf or angling. ... more
