Akbal Dubroots are Christian Orlo, Chava and Alexis OL. Along with a few other friends they represent the vanguard of electronic music in their native Cancun, Mexico. With their unique blend of house, electro, minimal and breaks they’ve created a style all their own. Their label, Dialtone Recordings pushes the boundaries of club music with crisp upfront production that ranges from club stompers to ambient compositions. For Fresh Meat’s fourth slab the Akbal guys come up with a groove that boasts a biting distorted bass line, winding minimal beats and eerie vocal samples from a certain drug related movie…. This track isn’t for everyone but in the hands of the right DJ it’s lethal. Remixes come from the FM family. Ricochet goes for the haunted house approach with old school beats, a buzzing steel drum melody and dark CS-80 pads. The arrangement is sparse and more deadly for it. On the flip, the House of Black Dress Cover Version has that retro-futuristic vibe with a live jam session feel; for this one Nathan ‘HOBD’ Larsen plays bass, Moog and vocals – hence the “cover” and not a remix. Label boss Mazi dropped an unfinished version of this mix at WMC ’06 and the CD was politely commandeered by James Holden.
