Dabs – Skull & Bones / Hourglass [Horizons]

Dabs steps up with some seriously deep beats for his latest release on Horizons. Skull & Bones combines a creepy rasta vocal from MC Kwality with intricate, tribal percussion and what sounds like a sitar sample to create a creepy, cinematic vibe that could just as easily be used to soundtrack a ritualistic movie scene as to large up the dance.

Over on the flip Hourglass changes it up, teaming up with Mortem and keeping the beat rolling but muted on more of a deep liquid tip. Harmonic chimes sit delicately in the mix alongside soulful echo’d vocals and an insistent bass growl that gives the tune teeth without overpowering it.

Grab this now on advance white label from the Horizons shop and look out for the full digital/vinyl release later in the month.
