Noiseshaper Real to Reel
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Miracle Sounds
Berlin digital-dub duo Noiseshaper has done a lot to make Real to Reel more than just a collection of its better cabinet-rumbling tracks. But not even the expert hand of Adrian Sherwood or guests like punk-reggae superstar Ari Up can rescue nearly half of Real to Reel from feeling pedestrian and passionless. Tracks such as the Tokyo Tower remix of "Rough Out There," the digi-roots shuffle of "Bushmasta," and the dub balladry of "Wake Up" (featuring Jahcoustix) beg repeated plays, but many others (i.e. "Rise" and "Jah Dub") dance and dub with paint-by-numbers predictability.
