After two brilliant 12"s, Berlin dub magicians Tolcha release their first longplayer Gestalt. Put out by Shir Khan's and Tolcha's new digi-hop label Meta Polyp, this album is going to be something like dark electronica, mixed with smoky dub and grimey post hip-hop. After all, there is a new scene coming up from Berlin and it is somewhat dub infused and bass heavy, with members like Tolcha, Jahcoozi, The Tape, Al Haca, Data MC, Modeselektor and Quio, all calling from the same 'hood... all part of the new sound. With Gestalt, Tolcha are introducing their brand new soundscape of rolling bass, pitch-bending effects and streetwise lyrics all recycled through the echo chamber. Tolcha experiment with their tracks in a very unconventional way. They use dub as a musical tool, but more in terms of creating that certain darkness. RQM, the man with the love for spoken word artforms, rough beats and thick basslines, the mutated offspring of the hip-hop movement, who is always trying to push it into the future through his sonic experiments, features prominently on his contributions to this record. Fourteen tracks of pure audio madness, experimental shit and deepness galore. Gotta love it! Also featuring: Sasha Perera (Jahcoozi), Maxx (ex-The Goats), Rider Shafique (Pressure Drop), Ras T-Weed (ex-Rockers HiFi), Neonman (Pale) and Al Haca (Klein).
