It's exactly ten years now since the last Ben La Desh release on Dirt Crew. After a longer break from releasing music he is back and stronger as ever, with analogue gear and well curated sampling and live field recording, Fine Rise. The opener "Heel Goed" is an amazing track with that distinctive 909 beat and DX bass driven "La Desh" flavor and a truly wonderful vocal sample from a '90s TV commercial, hilariously funny and brilliant at the same time! Second A side track is the super funky "Lift Adrift" that flanges itself to outer space, etherical with chopped break beats and various percussive and rhythmic Pearl Syncussion layers running through effect pedals, Lift Adrift! On the other side is the deep title track "Fine Rise". Followed by the break beat gem that is "Asanti", cautiously cut up breaks and layered machine drums with bubbly Syncussion sounds, rain drops falling down on different surfaces recorded in a garden in the French Drôme and processed African Kalimba. Closing out this great new record is the ambient piece "Expanding Signal", an analogue tune that consists of field recordings and deep dubby chords, a building Juno pulse, swooshes and again a profound DX bassline, think of Sun Electric or The Orb. Enjoy this one and play it loud on the dance floors or silently in your bedroom, it works everywhere!
