Skull Disco

Woe was the day this maverick imprint disbanded.

With a penetrating vision and amazing quality control, Skull Disco carved a hybrid-genre niche that has yet to be filled. Some nameless form of mutant, tribal, dread: a teeming mix of minimal techno, world music, dub, and glitch. Ponderous, thudding riddims; skittering edits; Eastern instrumentation; jagged, techy synthesizers, heavily delayed vocals from Jamaica to India; grimey, modulated subbass and more tablas than you could shake a handballa at reverberate through cavernous dubbed-out atmospheres.

If you're already a fan, perhaps this mix, posted on the Skull Disco website will rekindle some fond memories. If you're new to the sound, now's as good a time to check it out. Either way, download the mix and check out the site.


[edit] Sound quality of the mix is really poor... just go and purchase these two albums:
