T-Woc - Delayed Responses / 12"
T-Woc has been building dubby beats for over ten years, with several releases under his belt for The Alphabet Set (which he co-runs ), Net-Lab/Wrong Music, 3Style, and one up soon on All City Dublin. T-Woc uses a combination of digital production, vintage analogue gear and live dub mixing techniques to bring his tracks to life. A total vinyl addict, he selects with Ireland biggest roots reggae crew Rootical Soundsystem, co-runs Dublin's (first and best) dubstep monthly club 'Wobble', and also hosts a weekly radio show on Dublin's Irish language station Radio na Life 106.4fm. His 'Delayed Responses' series is a blend of bass heavy sample based mostly dub(step) beats with hints of hip hop and electronic influences and large nods to soundsystem culture and 80s digital riddim vibes. 'Delayed Responses Vol 1' explores the outer boundaries of the dubstep sound, from the head nodding stoned vibe of 'Old & Grey', via the absolute skank attack that is 'Dogman' with its massive Shaka-led sample driving a hammering roots riddim, to the nearly Godspeed YBE-style 'Maghreb'. This EP is full of original ideas with mad percussion dubbed out all over the place, with vintage effects and a heavy-stepping stoned vibe.
