Bluetrain aka Steve O Sullivan - Babylon Paralysis - Future Primitive - FPR 005
The fifth Future Primitive release, Babylon Paralysis, sees the label work with an all-time favorite UK techno artist Steve O'Sullivan. We are super happy to be reissuing a classic slab of late '90s Bluetrain material from Steve in the shape of ''Congo Shuffle'', which originally surfaced as an untitled B1 on the timeless Echo Freaks 12''. Newly extended and edited by O'Sullivan, ''Congo Shuffle'' has been lavishly cut at the Exchange giving new life to this bottom-feeding monster. On the flip, Steve blesses us with two brand new productions continuing the sub-heavy theme of the A-side. Invisible Guest steps away from the straight-up 4/4 productions he's nailed in recent years in favor of a stealthy broken dub approach that wouldn't be out of place on go-to Bristol label Idle Hands. ''Paralyzed Dub'' is both the inspiration for the release title and another classic demonstration of Steve's ability to stun listeners with very few elements. Play loud and keep away from laptop speakers.
