Poland-born but now residing in London, sibling duo Kompozyt has pulled off something of a coup by securing the talents of mad-as-a-brush dub legend Lee 'Scratch' Perry to appear on "Hidden Force". His familiar Jamaican drawl naturally comes to the fore, ricocheting above a head-nodding future dub rhythm that should appeal to fans of both dubstep and dub techno as well as full-on dub-heads. Almost as impressive is the slightly more experimental and trippy B-side, "Homesick", where echoing orchestral sweeps and distant trumpet solos bob in and out of a sea of pitched-down dub techno textures. Don't miss out on this one - it really is rather good.
Both tracks come from Kompozyt's debut album: 'Synchronicity' - out everywhere now on CD and DL.
