Rhythm Baboon "Hunting Bushman"
Released yesterday on Warsaw-based electronic music label Concrete Cut, the Jambah Bong Dub EP is a four-track offering from Polish DJ/producer Rhythm Baboon, who's been exploring the more ominous and esoteric side of bass music for some years now. The artist born Szymon Listewnik has been compared to the likes of Shackleton and Demdike Stare, neither of which are a stretch; his deft use of percussion and ominous low-end tones place him square in that camp of dubby experimentalists. "Hunting Bushman" puts these strong points at the forefront of Rhythm Baboon's production work, which—along with some ghostly sound effects and field recordings of cricket chirps—quite effectively create the suspenseful and mysterious mood of running through the jungle, whether you're hunting or being hunted. You can sample more of these sounds from Listewnik's new EP here.
