Various Systemwide Remixes: Impure and Replied
- Words: Matt Fisher
- Label: BSI
The heavy dub textures of Portland's Systemwide have been crying out for remix work ever since the band first stepped into the studio in 1997. It's clear they have some talented admirers, as their sometimes impenetrable, bass heavy rhythms and distortions are picked apart, shuffled and re-imagined by some of the scene's best dub-inclined producers to great effect. NY's Cosmic Rocker turns in a funky steppers-style dub, Worship's Rob Payne combines the bassy textures with a jumpy house hi-hat, and Star Dub's sub-bass-driven cut is like bottoming out in an overloaded submarine. Also choice madness from Twilight Circus, Jah Warrior, and Om Records' J-Boogie. Get comfortable, dim the lights and smoke the whole thing.
