Feelin' Dank is the second Bus album on Scape. Berliners Tom Thiel and Daniel Meteo aka Bus have created a truly relaxed record that mops up and redispenses the fun and vastness around them. As on previous Bus excursions, dub, hiphop and electronic elements provide the imaginary, triangulated demarcation lines for an expansive freestyle adventure playground that might even spawn the odd house track. The overall mood of Feelin' Dank is that carefree abandon has returned to dancefloors across the globe and left its mark on impassioned DJ and club-goer Meteo. On their latest outing, Bus conjure up transgressive paradises, while gentler elements have snuck into the Bus mix -- "soul" and "party vibe," they call it. On "Rose Specs," they crank up the might of the handclap, kickstarting a jam which, for a good two minutes, leaves raw, untweaked keyboard and guitar tracks to their own devices. Glasgow MC Soom-T also adds her boyish and soulful rap recitative to this track, as well as to the instrumentals of "Diamond In The Rough" and "The Answer." Soom-T, who already graced the first Bus album Middle Of The Road (SCAPE 019CD/LP), is part of the Glasgow crew Monkeytribe. On Feelin' Dank Bus chose to treat her voice just like the live instruments -- instead of demanding 100% mathematical accuracy they preferred to leave passages with feeling in place. They took a similar approach with Soom-T's colleague MC Rhino and Gonzales-collaborator Paul PM (whose vocals can be heard on "Twistin" and "Perdu"), while the final offbeat house of "My Night" features a session with Ras T-Weed of the Birmingham-based Overproof Soundsystem.
