The Totem series launched back in June with label head Lucy's Tarkomania 10", signaling the series' focus towards a "wider and warmer" sound, whilst investigating the relation between sound and material object—each release is pressed to an emblematic transparent 10" vinyl. For the second outing, Lucy invites Slater's L.B. Dub Corp project for a typically stripped back exercise in house music. From the brilliant dubbed-out bass of "Roar" to the the tense and gritty drums of "Hard Wax" and the closing cut's alluring grooves, Roar is a fine edition to the series and a set of fine ammo for DJs.
Ahead of the release on August 31, you can pre-order the record here, with the closing track, "Step Sure Dub," streaming in full below.
