Tribal Data EP ( Unknown To The Unknown )Sublime skunk heavy dub vibez from Filter Dread for Unknown To The Unknown.
We have been waiting for a follow-up to match the technicolour rave of his 2013 Space Loops album for No Corner since forever, so thankfully this hook up with DJ Haus's UTTU has come about. In many ways it's the perfect home for his mashed-up freestyling genre-smashing liquid grime sound. Though hardly a surprising result that these two would hook up, both Filter and UTTU are known for their cross-pollination of sounds 'n' styles from stoned junglist icebergs to steppin' 'ardkore transitions, and for Tribal Data they hit the peak of a sound they have both been moving in the direction of.
Tribal Data is like an imagining the last twenty years of underground UK club music (garage, grime, dubstep, jungle) thrown into a blender and then shot through a needle into the grooves of the fattest bass resonating dubplate around. Mixing a splash of Wiley Eski beat here, dropping a techstep bassline there, a drizzle of Landstrumm techno on the edge and topping it off with a dash of Zomby UKG reverb and you have one of the most well rounded techno records around.
By pulling influence from so many sounds and styles Filter Dread has crafted a record that is strikingly original yet packed to the brim with tasty segments from the very best sections of his, ours and most likely your record collections.

Filter Dread dissolves and recombines the binds of digi-dub and myriad UK ‘nuum styles for the re-floated Fresh 86 label, which was originally responsible for OG jungle jewels by Digital & Spirit.
These are almost breakcore-nutty mutations, veering from weightless grime rave styles in Panic Attacks to the sparring drums, whistles and speed garage womp of Flat Bass and over into murderous ‘ardcore twists with Data Pulse and the ruffneck tracker splatz ov Looking Good.

11th July 2013: Space Loops (No Corner)
Dense, paranoid hazes of late nights and patch leads, Akai samplers left running through grubby delay units…breaks stretched to their serrated limit, exposing the pitted drum hits that the UK underground is built on, from Jungle to Grime and beyond.
