Among others, he’s also released with Gaze ill’s Cue Line Records and Swiss-based Subotage Records, as well as having received support/airplay from J:Kenzo or N-Type on radio stations like Rinse FM. Having lived in Berlin for years, it was time for the producer and DJ to take a break from the hectic day-to-day life and move to the rural North, where his creativity was once again able to flow readily – the result of which we’re proud to present to you, catalogued as ‘SUBAD005’. Fully re-charged, he’s taken a more melodical approach than usual for his massive debut here at Sub AudioRecords.

His versatile, groove-infused drum arrangement keeps us dancing to the beat, left to skank in the sonic ocean Ziplokk has conjured for us here. On the remix duties, label head Gnischrew has treated the tune to a heated version – creatively envisioning it as a two-faced beast. Smooth, soulful chords alternate with distorted sine movements, coming together beautifully within a new-found groove. Completing the release, ‘Me Nah Play’ is here to seal the deal. Ethereal chimes reverberate on top of the energetic drum layout, coming together beautifully on smooth sub oscillations. A signal of sonic resistance, hailing the underground.

Press release:

Building up momentum throughout its first year in operation, the Austrian imprint Sub Audio is gearing up to unleash another installment in their digital release series, dubbed ‘SUBAD004’. Based in Vienna, the label has made swift moves to recognition within the scene with vinyl releases by label manager Gnischrew or the venerated duo Elefant Doc & Dillard, as well as limited editions on Grime conniseur DMG and Belgian heavyweight Zygos. For its fourth digital release, it is calling upon the sounds of UK-born Linguist, having previously had his debut with SUBAF003 ‘Wardance / Hypnosis’. Titled ‘Ibogaine EP’, we’re met with three prime examples of his devastating dancefloor capabilities, all firmly founded within the realm of Dubstep – uniquely influenced by his original take on old-school tendencies and modern soundscapes.

Thrown into a sonic jungle, the tropic ambience succinctly envelops us in a psychedelic foundation, led on by tribal percussion and mystifying French monologue. Reverberating into a moment of tension, the dancefloor shell unveils its true nature – low frequency madness. In midst of ethnic chants, spheric pads and a plethora of atmospheric foley, the driving rhythm paves its path, fire through and through. Centering ourselves, ‘One’ commences its tensive, melodic approach, preparing keen listeners for the impending sub onslaught. Whether Linguist calls upon fierce strings, ethereal bells or sounds of the future – effortlessly keeping both us and dancefloors around the world moving to his drum beat. Speaking of which, ‘Stomper’ turns up the heat in a grand finale, shoving a ridiculous groove and bass compound into our amplifiers – no holds barred.
