Holy Tongue is a collaboration between terrific percussionist VALENTINA MAGALETTI, best known for her work with Vanishing Twin, Tomaga,Nicolas Jaar and Jandek among many others, and dub producer AL WOOTTON (TRULE Records, FKA Deadboy).
This first EP is a product of an improvised session in East London. Heavily influenced by dub reggae, the two bring a mutual appreciation for the experimental dub of On-U-Sound, Muslimgauze, and post-punk bands such as Liquid Liquid and 23 Skidoo to the forefront of the sound.Wootton, for his part, does an admirable job letting Magaletti's fascinating rhythms steer the ship. He adds a roots-inspired bassline here and there but mostly focuses on spacious dub texture.
The result is an EP of psychedelic, free-form, high energy, spiritual dub-dance music.
Released on Amidah Records,an offshoot of TRULE Records, specialising in more experimental sounds.
