Al-Haca Soundsystem Inevitable
- Words: Philip Sherburne
- Label: Different Drummer
The bad news: anyone expecting the same minimalist brutalism and ragga bounce of Al Haca Soundsystem's devastating single "Killer" may find this German outfit's debut album overly polite. This is no The Bug, and He-Man's Cookie Monster growls grace only one track on the album. The good news: Inevitable shows the four-piece to be master crafters of deep digital dub. More cushioned than Sterotyp'nevitable pairs deejays like Ras MC-Tweed, Mr. V, and even Sizzla with billowing ambient dub of the Rhythm & Sound school, coloring the whole thing with a rosy glow.
