Mensah - Sahara / Not A Shy Gyal / 12"
Sahara / Not A Shy Gyal
Mensah Anderson is Bristol resident, and, along with Chasing Shadows, in loose cahoots with the confederated tribe of H.E.N.C.H., known for the likes of Jakes, White Boi, and Komonazmuk. In keeping with these contemporaries, Mensah comes forth with a pair of wobblers to end all wobblers, with a drop so utterly destructive, it has already laid waste to a pair of mids, a sub, and the diodes inside the alternator of one automobile, thus rendering all three inoperable. However, while the combination of distinctive hollow-echo bass drum punch and frequency tweaked bassline are a pair of fearsome beasts indeed, these tunes don't come with the deliberate intent of being heavier than heavy, they just are. Their ominous force manifests in undercurrents of dirty low end dissonance, which only reveal their full power at peak amplification - like the eye of a storm, it's not the bang and clatter of random destruction that catches the attention, but the awe and wonder at what is to come. Truly haunted business, like only LoDubs would unleash.
