The debut release from the newest antipodean addition to the Jahtarian stables is a double-LP-length digikal reggae opus filled with gritty minor-key riddims designed to wreak havoc on the cogs of the Babylon system.
The project was born in a most unlikely fashion, after naram crafted an 80s horror film-inspired riddim on a battered iPod while on a bicycle trip across the Middle East. The March of the Gremlins riddim then somehow found its way into the hands of disrupt - thus kicking off a truly outernational collaboration.
Despite being named for a riddim built on an iPod, this album is heavy on authentic analogue niceness - with an arsenal of vintage synths and studio gadgets used to full effect. And with disrupt on dubbing duties in his secret lab, the release is tied together by a lush, haunting atmosphere that's been faithfully recorded to tape.
Like the furry mogwai creatures from the 1984 film of the same name, Gremlins is bound to kick up rumpus after dark - and the pressings are well heavy - so don't sleep on this one!
