Disrupt was one of many fantastic surprises to scoot my way in 2007.
I'm not a fanatic of electronic music. Barring the odd special album that comes out now and again usually find it to be cold and devoid of the organic warmth I like to hear in music. I also an not an avid listener of reggae or dub; granted I've got a few Third World, Marley and Sceintist albums but that's really as far as it goes.
Now who would have thought combining the two would produce such immense results. Obviously this is nothing new; dub has been around in electronic music for years especially of the ambient variety, but Disrupt is something special.

It, in essence, is 8-bit electronic dub. Whatever that is - I like it, a lot!
Foundation Bit is brimming with spiky, ostensibly lo-fi blips and bleeps that could have come straight from old school 80s computer games. All this is laid on top of beautiful reverb drenched dub beats and heavy, rumbling basslines. Piano & horn stabs echo away in true King Tubby style; basslines have infinite levels of depth; everything is smothered in rich reverb. It's dirty and yet it's so crisp.

What makes it so special is it's completely devoid of vocals aside from the odd spoken sample, and it's catchy and memorable as hell. Each rhythm is different; each bassline stamps it's presence on your brain and wont relent until the next irrestisable bass transmission.

Tracks like The Stars My Destination, Blast You To Bits and Foundation Bit are the unsung heroes of electronic music; whilst they're danceable, they're not uptempo enough to creep into DJ sets and it's possibly too heavy and spacey for dub purists to get into.

I've not much to say about this,
apart from that it's one of the
most 'listenable' albums I own.
nigh on perfect.

Your Atari Smokes Quantity 10 Oct. 2008
By TW!TCHDOkTOR - Published on
Format: Audio CD
When the Atari 2600 that's been collecting dust for the last quarter-century sneaks out of your basement at night to smoke your stash, this is the album it skins up to. In the Star Wars laser battle being waged between the pages of Disrupt's notebook computer, one can almost hear the ghost of Lee Perry's Black Ark Studio haunting the corridors of the Babylon system's Star Destroyer. All of the sounds that really spin my propellers are here; from the low-res 8-bit skank, to the crushing sub-bass sine waves, to movie samples from Rockers and Tron, to pushbutton bleeps and boops and Vocoder robot sounds, Jahtari netlabel proprietor Disrupt steps up to claim the champion crown of the chipdub sound.
dub be good to me 18 Dec. 2007
By A. van Esschoten - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a very well put-together album. The tracks I like best are track 1 tot 10. Playing track 8 makes everybody in the neighbourhood dub their socks off..
Somehow disrupt has put together an album filled with my favourite music. Music I like: le peuple de l'herbe cube, hightone bass temperature, king shiloh, the wiseguys The Antidote, herbaliser blow your headphones, lo fidelity allstars how to operate.., fat freddy's drop based on a true story.. if you like some of these albums you are sure to like Disrupt - Foundation Bit.
