Product Description

Whoever considers dub an invitation to either armchair or dancefloor will enter shaky ground with Middle of the Road, the new album by Berlin duo Bus. Here, in the middle lane, giving way on the left, overtaking on the right, rules are disregarded and accidents only a microsleep away. In the realm of Scape's characteristic tilde the coordinates of relational localisation fail in the same way as Daniel Meteo and Tom Thiel disobey any directional marching orders. Instead they have chosen to cruise the bermuda triangle of dub, minimal electronica and hiphop in a veritable craft, bursting the questionable airbag of attitude, ego and representation with their first stumbling beat. Bus do not stop at unmasking genre-typical poses, but move one step further. They collect all the tiny inconsistencies that unveil the desolate yet strong core of their own fragility, sometimes through a slightly wobbly beat, sometimes via brutally honest lyrics -- and always head for the limits. But don't worry -- the view remains enchanting, perhaps because it is so familiar. And the Bus dub, a warm engine, leads a likeable life of its own -- with small hiccups and endearing quirks. Spurred by this drive, armchair and dancefloor are soon forgotten -- and we step into the middle of the road, come what may. In their efforts to combine dub, minimal electronica and hiphop in one riff they have managed to win over strong vocal support from Glaswegian underground shooting star MC Soom-T -- the only woman to reach the finals of the recent 8 Mile MC Championships 2003. Soom-T employs a wrongly forgotten recitative style, voice full of sharp, credible femininity and demanding involvement far from the prevalent lady, bitch or girl patterns.
