Boom One Producer/Multi-instrumentalist Matt Mansfield aka Piper Street Sound’s Experimental Dub Reggae outfit known as KingRat recorded this single/EP in 2009 with Mansfield at the helm on the bass as well as behind the soundboard. The producer’s early work shows his love for old-school Jamaican Dub and his budding technical prowess. Performances are rounded out by Ryan Rudolph on saxophone, Julian Morena on guitar, Sam Epstein on keys, Camilo Moncada on percussion, and Jeremy Saude on drums- who went on to form excellent bands such as The Ruination, Bird City Revolutionaries, Peekaboo Streetsweeper, and Dwarf Planets; while Mansfield went on to develop his studio space at Piper Street Studios, and win acclaim with diverse acts like DubConscious, FLT RSK, Dialect Trio, and in his own right as Piper Street Sound while continuing to work frequently with Sam Epstein.
The tunes feature heavy Dub f/x, intense sampling, an interesting, plaintive melody expounded upon by Epstein’s keys, awash in hazy horns via Rudolph. Also included is a percussion-heavy version highlighting Moncada’s impeccable Latin rhythmic skills that exemplifies the band’s all-inclusive sound.
