Jolliffe - Dubplate Culture - Soulvent Records / SV056

Splashing onto the #Soulvent scene with his debut single Howl back in March, Pete #Jolliffe Thomas is back with a beefy offering of seriously diverse tunes. This 4-tracker shows off more of this relatively new producer’s range, with some impressive features to chuck even more weight behind these intelligently composed tunes.

London lad #Pastry_Maker punctuates #Movie_Scene with his hypnotic hook while the tune itself is a playground of snares, percussive pops and lurching low-end, resulting in a distinctly welcome jungle feel.

Next up, title track #Dubplate_Culture sees Leeds veteran #Coppa share some pertinent thoughts surrounding test presses and their importance in the genre that we love so dearly. A polite reminder to all that sometimes you should let a dub remain a dub (and stop with the SoundCloud rips!).

Penultimate track #Northern_Shades levels out the EP with thundering kicks, glitchy percussion hits and a thumping bassline. Guttural, almost tribal vocals pre-empt the drop and rhythmic atmosphere patterns cleverly flank the chunky sub on offer.

Last up #Obi_Franky’s uplifting vocals throw #Moving_On into gear, sitting atop a warm foundation of piano and big risers. These huge vocals, matched with neck-snappingly crisp drums and a satisfying dose of bass, shows that Jolliffe can also unleash liquid inspired hand raisers when he so chooses.
