Collection of work featuring 3 artists: Akufen, Freeform & The Rip Off Artist. "Inflatabl Labl seems to delight in unlikely combinations. Rather than put out the same tired old compilation idea, the label has hit upon something unique and inspiring. Why not get three top-notch electronic producers to make four tracks each, in a style they're completely unfamiliar with? The first of the series, dub tribunL, featured tracks from AtomTM, Small Rocks and label owner The Rip Off Artist. This time around it's cut-up house legend Akufen, the ever unpredictable Freeform, and...er...The Rip Off Artist. (we did mention he owned the label, right?). And the challenge: blues music. Akufen forgoes his house tendencies for a raw, glitchy shuffle, with the voices of the past rising up like ghosts. An ultra-modern structure built on an ancient graveyard, and the spirits keep leaking through. Freeform harnesses his encyclopedic knowledge of world music to create something that is Deep South, Far East, nowhere and everywhere at the same time. And The Rip Off Artist focuses on the core of The Blues: the guitar and the twelvebar chord progression. And then splinters it into a thousand pieces, with rhythms that lurch and sputter, missing a beat here and there, and counting others twice."
