This is the second release on A Quiet Bump netlabel, for the Berlin based Italian duo Daniele Antezza and Giovanni Conti, aka Dadub. It’s a 4-track EP, centered around opne track, but it has the usual A Quiet Bump vibe: stripped down, “less is more” dubby goodness.
The main track is “Keep on Struggle”, which has a deeply chilled dub groove overlaid with melodica by Ivan Antezza and vocals by Stefano Fusillo. “Dub on struggle” is unsurprisingly a dubwise interpretation that retains the same well spaced vibe. “Keep on struggle (Melodica version)” dispenses with the vocals entirely and allows improvised melodica to take centre stage and take charge. “No struggle” is a remix featuring AQBMP stable-mate, Peak, with a white-noise inspired version.
You know what you’re getting when you download A Quiet Bump releases, and for me, that is quality, minimalist, chilled and expertly crafted dub. I commend this release to you! Irie.
