Released:
Label: PAN
Deep, droning ambience is probably not the first thing you think of when considering old jungle mixtapes, but that's precisely what Lee Gamble has rescued from his own collection of moldering cassettes. Released on Berlin's excellent PAN label, this 27-minute mini-album is a masterpiece of re-appropriation, but it would be just as affecting if you didn't know the backstory. Pitched-down bell tones, like chopped-and-screwed Sonic Youth, overflow into a slurry of tape hiss and delay; the eerie tones of processed cymbals and sub-bass quiver in the fringes like the ghosts of rave past.
