Bass Is Maternal
"Unearthed is a new Punch Drunk affiliated label with a mission to reissue classic Bristollian sound system music remastered and cut LOUD to heavyweight 12" vinyl for the first time. 'Bass Is Maternal' is the title track from the legendary original Smith & Mighty long player, eventually released on their own Three Stripe label in 1994 after lengthy delays. It is the manifestation of Smith & Mighty's proto jungle vision which came to dominate the mid nineties. 'U Dub' is a more traditional dubbed stepper's rhythm building to a break beat / junglist crescendo.This first 12" is fully dubstep compatible and has been recently revived by top selectors such as Pinch, Shortstuff and Ben UFO. Both tracks essential for collectors and crucial to the Bristol sound system continuum jigsaw. More stone cold classics coming soon from the Unearthed series."
