Ulrich Troyer - Dolomite Dub [4Bit Productions 008 Promo]

Scheduled for release via 4Bit Productions on February 8th, 2k19 is "Dolomite Dub", the new four tracks and 42 minutes spanning album project brought to us by the man that is Ulrich Troyer. Conceptually reflecting on a multi-days hike in the Dolomite mountains set at a constant given speed of 133.3 bpm we see Ulrich Troyer and the participating triumvirate consisting of Jürgen Berlakovich, Susanna Gartmeyer and Didi Kern develop a slow moving musical landscape based on dry bass figures, delicate, yet slightly dreamlike, fever'ish and tribalistic, in parts even live played percussions as well as occasional effects on all interwined tracks of the album which, from our perspective, is closer related to styles like Indietronica, (Post)PostRock, late 90s Viennese Future Jazz or Contemporary (Neo)Krautrock than to the original Dub genre although the given references and intersections between these genres are obvious on this album. Probably best experienced on a proper massive soundsystem rig rather than via headphones or on your home stereo speakers.
