Self-styled “Tropical Bass” producer The Rum Baba brings her intriguing blend of electronic shenanigans to the ridiculously named Aluminium Shiny Shin Side Shackout Music (try and say that when you’ve had a couple of pints…) and the results are pretty intriguing. The tracks on the EP career around the genre spectrum, taking splashes of influence from D&B, bashment, dub, soca, ska and who knows what else.
Meatallic and Nuclear prove the most uptempo tracks on offer, with the former providing a kick and sub dominated smasher and the latter serving up a tidy slice of drum-roll heavy D&B shenanigans. The middle of the EP definitely takes it a little easier, with slouching, bass heavy riddims a plenty for your sonic delectation. There’s definitely a hint of the tropical to it all, and it’s certainly a bit different from the usual fare.
Check out the clips below and hit up Juno for the pre-order before the July 31st release date.
