LOW STOCK LEVEL
Fully Loaded/Muslim Dub
"This record is HAUNTED. Not really in that poltergeist way, though. More in the Harbinger of Doom way, at least as far as record labels go. From what we have been informed, two different record labels have penciled it in for release, and both, due to a variety of reasons all their own, have ceased to exist. We here at Lo Dubs are not afraid of ghosts though, and even if the earth does swallow us up for releasing 'Fully Loaded,' it would be a fitting end. Ultimately, 'Fully Loaded' could be described as a bit spooky, but in that upsetter vs. the vampire way, with its reverb-drenched, echo-heavy skank. We were actually looking at these tracks before the ones that ended up being the first South3rn record on Lo Dubs, the much-touted Mangione Tribe Dub, But as stated before, the ultimate outcome was far from clear at that point. The two releases almost seem like a tome now, as 'Fully Loaded' is about as epic as roots-centric dubstep may ever get. Add to that the B-side, entitled 'Muslim Dub,' which is pure spring steppiness, with a lush, clean amplified riffing and lyrical toasting that evoke the feel of a soundclash dub, circa 2047. Lo Dubs is very pleased to present Fully Loaded/Muslim Dub, from the southwest masters of the dub, South3rn. As with all previous releases, this 12" comes mastered by Transition, and packaged in a hand-stamped, Kraft jacket."
