Dysphemic – Inter-G-Lactic
Released 19 Jan 2016
Returning with his second release on Gravitas Music, Dysphemic perfectly melds glitch hop with 1980s sci-fi soundtrack vibes on “Inter-G-Lactic”. Julian, who is better known as Dysphemic, has co-created this cosmically minded EP alongside his brother Yiani as a tribute to their father, Vernon Treweeke, who passed alway last year. Well known for his visually psychedelic paintings, Vernon was a well respected figure within the Australian and international psychedelic community; his legacy lives on through his sons and their musical memorial to his achievements.
The freshman tune “Age Of Vern” kicks things off with conscious hip hop cut fueled by classy Spanish guitar and funky yet smooth bass lines. Things get a bit heavier with the title track; well-tuned synthesis plays beautifully alongside filtered, twangy guitar riffs. Called “a tour de force of Balkan and Middle Eastern string sounds” by The Untz, “Anatoli” dips deep into an exotic aesthetic while continuing the larger aesthetic of the album. “Decompression” brings up the rear with its intricately resampled reese basses and broken, pulsing drum beat.
‘Today is world environment day’
…There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop! —Mario Savio, Berkeley Free Speech Movement
To gain what is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else. —Bernadette Devlin, Irish activist and politician

Go to release and download here.
Blessed with a devotion to dub and roots culture and politicised by the inequalities that haunt a world of plenty, Red Star Martyrs have arrived as the latest incarnation of musician and producer Stanley Wood. As a member of cult Birmingham reggae outfit Route 81, Stanley learnt his trade as a guitarist and gigging musician before becoming part of guerrilla graffiti specialists and urban raconteurs Echo Base. Here he encountered for the first time the mystical world of the recording studio and within it, the wonders of the Roland Space Echo – a love affair was born.
The romance bloomed with the arrival of affordable technology, enabling those that dared to dream the chance to create their own Channel One studio. The logical outcome for Stanley was Shotgun Rockers. From producing original dubs for the Dub Nation sound system, Shotgun Rockers became recording artists for Zip Dog, Nubian and Tanty records at the moment when a new breed of dub was being formed, introducing the energy of European dance music to inspiration from the legends of the Jamaican dub.
Fast forward to the now and Red Star Martyrs exist as an open collective where roots and dub artists from all over the world are invited to contribute and collaborate, bringing a message of love, unity and political consciousness. Oh yeah, and to have fun too, because roots dub music is what makes us all smile, right?
The EP includes two tracks accompanied by the appropriate dubs for your personal recreation. “Insurrection” is a heavy stepper tune, followed by two exclusive mixes in one drop and breakbeat style. First appearance of Mrs Boo La La aka Bec Crispin on “Independence” spreading the rootical vibrations all the way.spreading the rootical vibrations all the way.
