Bus Featuring Mc Soom-T Feelin‘ Dank
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: ~scape
Glasgow‘s MC Soom-T waxes existential dread here, but the music grows a rose garden. "The right answer is always wrong/I learned this from the day I was born," she mopes. Berlin‘s Bus (Tom Thiel and Daniel Meteo) delivers digital dub that seems snapped together like Erector pieces-every tightly wound thud, neon-lit organ blurt, and guitar riff clunks into place as the single, "Diamond in the Rough," attests. The only catch is that the MC‘s chirp grows monotonous over time and offsets the Bus‘ angst with camp. Still, this record marks a step forward in bridging d-dub with hip-hop.
