Stress Assassin Carrier Track
- Words: Tyra Bangs
- Label: Spiral Trax
Stress Assassin makes grown-up dub for people who liked to "chill out" to Bob Marley in college. Grown-up dub isn't necessarily a bad thing-true to his moniker, Stress Assassin's music couldn't help but alleviate tension via its spacey grooves and oceanic bass bubbles. On Carrier Track, the Swedish producer also experiments with the genre's hallmarks, applying them to house ("I. Depth"), ambient ("Raumwelt Signal"), and even country ("Dust 13"). But listening to this record is still a bit too much like being transported into the middle of a hackey-sack circle at a hippie traveler rave-and that's a place I don't ever want to be. "
