Looking at electronic music through the cultural lens, you can easily see what our world has turned into in the past decades: a mixture of influences from societies and people strikingly different when it comes to cultural inheritance. Take for example, the Jamaican roots of dub, with all the melancholic vibe and muffled basslines, syntesized by Berlin’s Basic Chanel to fit the European underground’s dark environments as dub techno.

Matt Thibideau is one of the dub techno loyalists, with notable contributions under the Altitude alter ego. And after a 15 years silence, we were more than happy to discover him signing Undae, a 2 tracker for Jay Bliss’ Vade Mecum imprint. Retaining all the elements that define the dub techno sound, Altitude proposes a more danceable version: deep enough to be played on a late afternoon outdoor gathering, like the dub housey Internal Memory, or dubby enough to fuel the dance floor mystery we need from time to time, like the reverbing Falling.

Undae EP marks the Vade Mecum Color Series, focused on releasing dub techno on 10” vinyl.
