2015 Honorable Mention Pick 18

Knautic: Debut (East Van Digital, 2015)

Mr. Knautic does a really good job of preserving the spirit of dub while working a palette of mostly electronic sounds on this 6 song EP.

Tasty deployment of delayed sounds over drum machine beats and keyboard bass.  There are pieces of classic dub style vocals floating around that anchor the tunes in Dubland.

The fifth tune, Tafari Echo, works a drum and bass beat combined with some very Augustus Pablo melodica a tinge of dancehall beats.  Very creative music.
