ÐØK⇑N this is a exelent album, very dreamy and with an old school-dub kind of vibe. No extreme parts in terms of too much noisy feedback-loops... (wich can be cool, but would disturb the dreaminess on this one).... on the other hand, in terms of the "dubbiness" still very creative and never boring!

Atlanta-based Dub powerhouse and one-time pet project of Matt Mansfield a.k.a. Piper Street Sound, KingRat produced an excellent self-titled LP in 2008. These selections are further remixings (actually premixings because they came out prior to the release of the LP) of several selections from that work, focusing on the melodica skills of keyboardist Sam Epstein. Mansfield, always a dub engineer at heart, never met an opportunity to re-remix a riddim that he didn’t jump at. Epstein’s golden melodies shine in this new re-dubbing, taking the fore. While fans of KingRat will recognize the tunes from the LP, these dub riddims are vastly different from how they appear on that work. Such is Mansfield’s skill at the board. Old tunes, new f/x, a few ‘b-side takes’ seeing the light for the first time. And what a golden light it is.
Piper Street Sound, or Matt Mansfield, as earthlings call him, is a producer/engineer/multi-instrumentalist from Atlanta, Ga. His music traverses borders and time periods in a mélange of influences and rhythm. Dub Reggae, Ska, IDM, Afro, Latin, Mid-Eastern, Gypsy- his ability to express himself in the studio knows no bounds. Through diverse live acts including DubConscious, Dialect Trio, FLT RSK, Ghost Project, King Rat, and Dp3, Mansfield has honed his creative and artistic sensibilities into a powerful studio presence with an expansive body of work.
