Mighty ISHAN SOUND aka CRIS EBDON returns to ZamZam for his second outing. The young master of UK steppers and dubwise experimentation arrives after several phenomenal releases including double-packs on Hotline and Peng! Sound and a profile that continues to rise in the international sound system community through his increasingly intense touring schedule and ever-closer collaboration with mic-phenomenon Rider Shafique. “Rush On The Tonic” is a bruising 75 bpm killer that sees Ishan in minimalist dancehall mode. A stripped kick-snare combination pulse drives the sparse riddim, hi hats and shakers adding subtle movement and tension. Signature analog keys and flutes duel and intertwine in hypnotic style & fashion, while spring reverb shocks and splashes cut through from a distance and analog pulses bleep into sentience. This one is all restraint, coiled power and subterranean menace. ZamZam’s resident wrecking crew ALTER ECHO & E3 return the favor of Ishan Sound’s massive “Warning Dub” remix with a B side version primed for steppers dances. 75 bpm smacks to 150 with a power stepper true to the vibe of the original, but full charge with ricocheting percussion, lacerating snares, sample archaeology and even thicker atmospherics. Limited to 800 copies.
